As we look towards our future, we are faced with the world’s changing energy demands. There is an increasing global movement towards renewable energy thus creating a greater need for innovation in technology.

Amber Kinetics is an energy storage company pioneered by Dr. Seth Sanders and Ed Chiao and is based in Silicon Valley. Through the founders’ shared vision to help accelerate a clean energy future, they successfully developed the world’s first and only long duration Kinetic Energy Storage System (KESS).

Amber Kinetics KESS

From its origins, the company has commercialized and expanded its presence globally with its first manufacturing facility in the First Philippine Industrial Park in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. A second plant in the country is also in the final stages of construction. Amber Kinetics provides accessible technology to support the Philippines’ growing renewable energy demands.


Reliable long-term energy storage

The KESS features a power capacity of 8kW and discharge duration of four hours. With a commitment to provide a more sustainable solution, Amber Kinetics ensures utilizing recyclable steel materials. Additionally, the flywheel does not contain nor emit any hazardous materials over its design lifespan of 30 years. Apart from technical proficiency, the flywheel is a promising energy solution that does not compromise environment and safety.

The modular system is suitable for applications such as capacity or demand reduction, ancillary services, and energy firming.

Building local partnerships and planting solid roots

In an effort to champion renewable energy in the Philippines, Amber Kinetics has also established partnerships with the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). Both institutions are exploring emerging energy innovations, providing support to the country’s energy interests.

Amber Kinetics also established its Flywheel Innovation Hub, a demonstration facility for flywheel technology at the De La Salle University – Laguna Campus. As a future-oriented company, they are set on encouraging the Philippine youth to take interest in renewable energy.

The leading energy storage provider

Amber Kinetics has successfully installed and commissioned its KESS in Australia, China, Philippines and the United States. More recently, they have deployed and installed flywheel units for projects in Japan. Apart from the Philippines and their Research and Development Center in the United States, they also hold offices in Australia and Singapore.

The world is making a clear shift towards renewable energy and Amber Kinetics is here to keep the Philippines connected to emerging energy developments. With their innovative and reliable energy storage system, the country is set for the future.
