Your ad placement in the book

This book is a translation of the original German 1st edition Schwungradspeicher in der Fahrzeugtechnik by Armin Buchroithner published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2019: Storing energy is one of the most crucial engineering challenges of the 21st century. Energy storage systems are not only essential for the long overdue transition to renewable energy sources, but are also of special importance for all mobile applications. Flywheel energy storage systems (FESS) can be used in hybrid vehicles as an alternative to chemical batteries or supercapacitors and have enormous potential for future improvement of their energetic properties.


Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Armin Buchroithner works as a Senior Scientist at Graz University of Technology and is an expert in the field of flywheel energy storage and sustainable mobility.
