Energy Storage Takes On Weird New Forms As Sparkling Green Future Takes Shape

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on CleanTechnica.

The first section is entitled Gravity-Enabled Energy Storage Tested By Scotland’s Gravitricity and explains it well.

It then writes an interesting aside about pairing a Gravitricity system, with an idea from GE, in a section, which is entitled A Wind Power & Energy Storage Twofer, Maybe.

GE were proposing a lattice-style wind-turbine tower, so why not put a Gravitricity system inside?

Hence the maybe in the section title!

I can imagine an office or residential tower with a Gravitricity system built into the lift core in the centre of the building. Top the building with solar panels or wind turbines and you’re going some way towards a building that could be self-sufficient in energy.

Putting two and two together, so they add up to five, is the best way to improve efficiency.

The last section is entitled How To Do Energy Storage Without Any Energy Storage.

As I have never played a computer game, I don’t understand it, but it is based on research at two reputable universities; Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands and Northwestern University in the US.

Conclusion

We will be seeing weirder and weirder ideas for energy generation and storage in the future.
