A Flywheel regenerative braking system is an energy recovery system that reduces vehicle speed by converting some of its kinetic and potential energy into a valuable form of energy instead of dissipating it as heat as in the case of a conventional braking system. The converted kinetic energy is stored for future use or is fed back into the vehicle's power system. This energy can be stored in a battery or bank of capacitors for later use. Energy can also be stored with the help of a rotating flywheel which is one of the most inexpensive and effective methods of storing and regenerating power. The present invention provides an energy-storing regenerative braking system by transmitting the flywheel force as a torque tending to oppose the forward rotation of the wheel on applying the brakes. A brake-pad assembly mounted concentrically with the hub of a ground-engaging wheel is actuated upon braking to provide frictional engagement between the hub and clutch mechanism while applying a decelerating torque to the wheel. The clutch mechanism is engaged only upon braking and does not interfere with wheel rotation during other vehicle operating modes. The unique braking mechanism is selectively held in position by a rider-controlled clutch mechanism to accumulate energy over several braking events. Vehicles driven by electric motors use the motor as a generator when using regenerative braking, and its output is supplied to an electrical load. The energy transfer to the load provides the braking effect and regenerates power
