Kinetic energy storage systems have a long history, but in the last half a century many studies and projects aimed to make this form of energy storage competitive with other systems were developed. One of the main problems related to flywheel energy storage is linked to the energy dissipations due to aerodynamic and bearing drag: Magnetic bearings, also due to their ability of working in vacuum, are thus intrinsically required for these applications.
