In partnership with QSTP, Williams F1 established the Williams Technology Centre, Qatar to develop and commercialise technologies that have their origins in F1. This is currently focused on two R&D projects. The first is development of high-power composite flywheel energy storage systems that improve the efficiency and reliability of rapid transportation (e.g. metros) and strengthen electricity grids to support increased renewable generation. The second is the application of Williams’ advanced vehicle simulator technology to develop solutions for training & certification of regular, emergency and commercial drivers to improve road safety and fuel efficiency as well as other motorsports and entertainment.
