Energy Storage

Energy Storage is a core technology developed at the Center for Electromechanics (CEM). Since 1972, CEM has utilized the rotating mechanical energy stored in rotating machines to produce pulsed, high–power, electrical generators for a variety of experimental, industrial, and military applications. Today, CEM continues to pioneer energy storage solutions based on mechanical, electrical, and chemical systems. CEM views energy storage problems from an overall system’s perspective, developing new and innovative concepts as well as evaluating conventional and competitive approaches to generate meaningful solutions.
