The characteristics of modern flywheel energy storage systems uniquely qualify the flywheel for use in a variety of road vehicles, off-road vehicles and rail vehicles. About sixty studies and vehicle demonstration programs in a dozen countries indicate that in the future such flywheel-powered vehicles will have improved performance, reduced energy and fuel consumption and reduced life cycle cost. Flywheel capabilities and mobile applications are reviewed. (ERA citation 06:027347)
