Active Power's Flywheel Technology
The concept behind flywheels is quite simple: Objects in motion continue in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Flywheels have been used for more than 5,000 years in textile spindles and potters' wheels and were adapted to machine use during the Industrial Revolution.
