A-Culture Partners with Amber Kinetics to Boost Sustainability and Energy Independence
Energy is one of the largest costs of running a Recirculating Aquaculture System, but A-Culture has taken another significant step towards achieving energy independence and reducing reliance on the grid by entering a partnership with Amber Kinetics.
Amber Kinetics specializes in flywheel technology that enables the storage and release of solar and wind energy as needed. A-Culture was already actively pursuing ways to source its energy from renewable sources such as solar and wind energy, but storing the energy generated by these sources is important for ensuring energy reliability.
Amber Kinetics’ cutting-edge flywheel energy storage systems (FESS) will allow A-Culture to store excess energy generated by solar and wind farms and use it during periods of high demand or low generation, such as overnight. This collaboration, which sees Amber Kinetics joining A-Culture as a G10 member, brings together the final piece of the energy sustainability puzzle.
Amber Kinetics’ flywheel system is the world’s first and only long-duration solution capable of storing 32 kWh of energy in a two-ton steel rotor, enabling four-hour discharge. The flexibility and ruggedness of the Amber Kinetics flywheel make it suitable for bridging the gap between traditional energy generation, renewables, and battery-based storage.
The collaboration between A-Culture and Amber Kinetics represents a significant milestone in the pursuit of sustainable energy solutions. By integrating long-duration flywheel energy storage, A-Culture aims to minimise its carbon footprint and achieve energy independence, setting a new standard for the industry.
