We’re bringing back the great Greek philosophers, but this time, applying to energy storage.
Gravity Power and EscoVale Consultancy Services tapped on Archimedes’ idea of building a squirt gun by placing an extremely large and heavy stone into a tight-fitting water column. To generate power, release the water.
Or how about using fire? Isentropic experiments with a gravel system to store heat with up to efficiencies of 80 percent. Or instead of having ski lifts transport human beings, transport buckets of gravel.
For an industry still in its infancy, there is still a lot of time to think out of the box for wacky ideas.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
