Gravitricity Adds Hydrogen To Energy Storage Mix

The title of this post, is the same as that of this press release on the Gravitricity web site.

These are the first two paragraphs of the press release.

Energy storage specialists Gravitricity have revealed plans to add hydrogen and heat storage to their underground gravity energy system.

The Edinburgh innovators have submitted a global patent to turn purpose-built shafts into pressurised energy stores, capable of safely accumulating significant quantities of the gas.

These are my observations.

  • I believe the original concept of storing energy will work, which is why I have invested.
  • Other companies are proposing to store hydrogen under pressure below ground.
  • Heat is being extracted from the London Underground and used for heating buildings.
  • Using one hole for three purposes must be more cost-efficient.

These processes might be easier with a regular clean purpose-built shaft!
