FLASC

Putting Offshore Renewables on the Grid

Pitch

FLASC is an interface that takes an unpredictable input from an offshore renewable energy device (eg. Wind Turbine, Wave, Tidal, Floating PV).
This input is converted into an output that is smooth and predictable…much easier to connect to conventional electrical grids.

It does this by storing extra energy for times when there isn’t enough…however FLASC doesn’t use batteries!
Just compressed air and water, making it clean and suitable for very large scale systems.

It’s competitive advantage is the way it integrates into floating offshore platforms…something we’ve patented!
