Gravitricity in the media
As the world generates more and more electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources, there is a growing need for technologies which can capture and store energy during periods of low demand and release it rapidly when required. Gravitricity is based on a simple principle: raising and lowering a heavy weight in a deep mineshaft to store and release energy. Gravitricity Ltd and Huisman share the ambition to further develop this principle for land grids into a step changing solution.
The Gravitricity principle is highlighted in a NRC column (in Dutch only) following a TV documentary on energy storage.
