Observing the renewable energy transition from a European perspective


Dutch-British project involving storing/retrieving electricity by lifting/sinking large weights in a mine shaft (59,000 of those in the UK alone). Claim made by startup “Gravitricity”: power up to 20 MW per installation, life span ±50 year and a storage efficiency of 80 à 90%.

[] – Short-term energy storage with “Gravitricity” – iron versus ion
[] – Why don’t we use weights to store energy?
