Indigo Energy Inc. (Napa, CA) announced the successful testing of the company’s patent-pending composite flywheel technology to a top speed in excess of 1,500mph, storing nearly 3,000Wh of energy. The testing was conducted at Toray Industries Inc. (Tacoma, WA), a $9.0 billion multinational conglomerate and the composite flywheel manufacturing partner of Indigo Energy.

Target applications for the flywheel uninterruptible power supply systems include the supply of uninterrupted power for the FCC-regulated telephone system, cellular phone towers, cable television, digital subscriber lines systems and cable modem networks.
