At Torus, we are driven by the challenge to create and store energy that is sustainable, long-lasting, and affordable. That's where flywheel technology comes in, promising efficient storage for renewable energy like solar and hydropower.
In a feature on KSL, the largest news outlet in the Intermountain West, Torus co-founder and CEO Nate Walkingshaw talks about the birth of Torus and the immense potential of flywheel energy storage. Nate talks about being drawn to the concept of flywheel energy storage while trying to find a reliable way to store hydropower for his family's tree farm.
Housed in a sleek, barrel-sized casing, the system can be installed outside, much like an air conditioner unit. Thanks to advanced technology, the wheel inside the Torus device can spin for more than two days without using any electricity, providing reliable energy storage in the event of power outages or peak energy demand times.
The longevity of our product sets us apart. With an estimated lifespan of 30 years, the Torus system significantly outlasts the typical 3-10 year lifespan of a chemical battery. Our flywheels offer a sustainable solution with less environmental impact, making it a worthy investment over the long term.
As we prepare to expand our manufacturing facilities within Utah, we want to extend our gratitude to our community for your continued support and faith in us. We are thrilled to have you with us on this journey, as we work to reshape the future of energy, one flywheel at a time.
Stay tuned for more updates from the Torus team, and once again, we invite you to read the full article on KSL for a detailed look at our work and vision
