BSI is developing a PAS for high speed composite flywheels for energy storage use in mobile applications. A PAS is a sponsored fast-track standard that is developed through a consensus-building process facilitated by BSI Standards Limited.
The introduction of energy recovery systems into vehicles generates the need for an efficient, low mass, high cycling, and high-power energy storage system. To this end high-speed, fibre-reinforced composite flywheel technology has been developed to fulfil this requirement and hence significantly reduce both the CO2 output and the fuel consumption of vehicles that utilize this technology.
