Abstract

Natural cellulosic materials have been shown to have moderate specific energy storage potentials. The low materials and assembly costs suggest that cellulosic rotors may be economically competitive in stationary flywheel storage applications where volume and total mass are not primary considerations. A review of research on cellulosic flywheels indicates that one to two ton pseudoisotropic plywood rotors are technically feasible and would cost 50/MJ.
