I was doing some research into flywheel based UPS systems as a power back up for data centres and trading floors when I came across this video clip (youtube). It shows highly relevant information for students who may be considering engineering as a career. The company is Beacon Power in the USA. They make high tech fly wheel kinetic energy stores which are destined for use in smoothing the peaks and troughs in the USA energy grid. The viseo is one of a series promoted by NEMA. It would be good if the UK engineering companies promoted their career opportunities in a similar fashion.
As an aside this is the company I was looking at for Generator/Flywheel UPS systems for a data centre. Ignoring all of their OTT marketing hype, it looks quite promising.
