      L.A. Metro's VYCON System Reducing Energy Consumption

      VYCON announced that the April installation of its REGEN kinetic energy storage system at the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Red Line Westlake/MacArthur Park Subway station is realizing nearly 20% in energy consumption. Based on the data obtained so far, it is estimated an annual savings of 541 megawatt hours (MWh), enough to provide power to 100 average California homes.

      ABB’s Energy Storage Work With SEPTA Wins Innovation Award

      Power and automation technology group, ABB, today announced that their work to transform the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) system into both a smart consumer and producer of energy has won the prestigious award for “Innovation in Mobility” at the Energy Storage North America (ESNA) conference, the largest grid energy storage event. ABB led the design, supply and integration of the “Wayside Energy Storage Project” within SEPTA‘s aging transit infrastructure. Originally installed in April 2012, the system captures braking energy for redistribution into the SEPTA power network while generating revenue with behind the meter load response to sustain the local grid and the wholesale energy market.

    3. Kinetic Energy Storage System Increases eEfficient Use of Rail Power

      Kinetic Energy Storage System Increases eEfficient Use of Rail Power

      The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) recently completed the installation of a kinetic energy storage system at Metro’s Red Line Westlake/MacArthur Park station. The equipment, provided by Southern California-based flywheel power solution developer, VYCON, is being used in Metro’s Wayside Energy Storage Substation-WESS Project. The project will demonstrate how VYCON’s green regenerative technology stores energy generated by braking trains and redistributes that energy to rail lines to accelerate  trains  — vastly improving energy usage that otherwise would be wasted in the form of heat.
