In this program, Amber Kinetics designed, built, and tested a sub-scale 5 kWh engineering prototype flywheel system. Applying lessons learned from the engineering prototype, Amber Kinetics then designed, built, and tested full-size, commerical-scale 25 kWh flywheel systems. The systems underwent basic functional qualification testing before being installed, sequentially, at the company's outdoor test site in Alameda, CA, for full-speed field testing.
