Flywheel energy storage is a new sustainable development technology, which has the advantages of high energy storage density, fast charging and discharging speed, long service life and so on. It breaks through the constraints of traditional chemical fuel cells and stores energy in a physical way. This paper discusses the structure and composition of flywheel energy storage, introduces three kinds of common and practical high-speed motors for flywheel, and three kinds of powerful flywheel magnetic levitation bearings. The development of flywheel energy storage in different industries and the reuse of resources in different situations are introduced. The application of flywheel energy storage technology to achieve energy saving and emission reduction production has a broad market application prospect.
