Carbon fiber is used for tanks holding high pressure for air guns. That application counts as an accumulator, in my book.

Although I have never encountered one, I would think that a carbon fiber accumulator would be advantageous in a mobile hydraulic application where the weight saving (vs. a steel accumulator) would be desirable; for example in an aircraft's hydraulic system

Do you know someone who might be interested in a new design?

We have them in garbage trucks to brake and then ease the start load

The sales teams in the organisations that sell these things will. After all, it is their job to provide that information.

Hydrogen tank for transportation

Hydraulic accumulator for hybrid trucks or wave generator

Paint ball nitrogen tank

I looked at a fancy water filter system that used similar tanks.

Desalination?

Oh.. and I could use a big tank and a mess of hydraulic components to generate power without water or windmills.

...once upon a time there was a air powered car but it wasn't much of a car.

.

Seema like a (or a few) major critical component (s) of the power generation system have gone conspicuously unmentioned. What powers this system?

Yes. The vendors of these things do. That is what their sales teams are there to provide.
