De La Salle University and industry partner Amber Kinetics launched their project “Integrated Flywheel Storage Management System” – a research under the DOST CRADLE (Collaborative Research and Development to Leverage Philippine Economy) program.
The kickoff event was virtually staged, where academics, researchers, government officials and business leaders gathered to discuss developments and challenges with clean energy solutions in the country. The joint project of DLSU and Amber Kinetics aims to improve the viability of off-grid energy systems by exploring various renewable energy applications and developing a management system to incorporate flywheel technology.
In the event that participants took the time to share their views on the significant shift to clean energy and technologies that can accelerate the transition. The move towards sustainability and decarbonisation indicates rapid growth of renewable energy in the coming years, but issues of intermission continue to serve as a challenge. Amber Kinetics used this as a springboard to come up with the best long-term solution through its flywheel technology, and the company believes that the development of a system integrator will allow users to fully unlock all the benefits of the energy storage system.
“Any technology is only as good as its ability to be integrated into the system of which it will be a part. Responding to the demand for clean energy is the core of the application of this project, which we are implementing together, ”says Archie Go (Global VP of Operations, Amber Kinetics). In addition, Amber Kinetics expressed its gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with DLSU as a leading university for technology and development in the country.
DOST awarded DLSU and Amber Kinetics a PHP 5-M grant to promote its Integrated Flywheel Storage Management System project. DOST continues to support innovative solutions that provide positive social impact and pave the way for collaboration between industry and academia. DLSU and Amber Kinetics’ Integrated Flywheel Storage Management System project is in line with DOST’s goal of helping optimize energy storage technologies to ensure sustainable energy supply for all Filipinos.
