“In summer, weights are transported up the mountain and left in the valley in winter, and the photovoltaic energy of summer is available in dark winter.” Bill Gates explained his investment in lift or gravitational energy storage technology in a similar way.

Batteries are getting cheaper and cheaper and will soon offer a cheap, short-term solution for storing energy for daily energy needs.
However, the long-term storage capacity of batteries, for example in an annual cycle, is not economically viable.

Although Pump Hydro Storage Technologies (PHS) is an economically viable choice for long-term energy storage with large capacities of more than 50 megawatts (MW) –
For locations where the energy storage requirements are often below 20 MW and have monthly or seasonal requirements, such as small islands and remote locations, this becomes expensive.

The research institute IIASA came up with a new investigation of the mechanical seasonal storage solution with sand and gravel in remote locations as part of larger off-grids or microgrids. The idea is as old as mining with cable cars.

With more fluctuating renewable energies going online, we will see more solutions like the Berg Gravitational Energy Storage. Perhaps we will see hundreds of ski lifts with a new summer purpose: store energy on peaks with gravel, sand or old concrete blocks and thus enable a completely solar-powered leisure activity even in the dark winter. On PV4.eu I have some weight to kwh calculator to calculate or to estimate lift costs.

Through a family business founded in 1985, I have been working independently with subsidiaries companies, for over 20 years in the field of computer science and renewable energies.

Even as a child, I was fascinated by the family's small hydropower plant in Styria and since then I have been in flames for sustainable solutions.

Are rare earths used in Solar Panels and Batteries
According to a report by ADEME , the earths are not so rare. Especially in photovoltaic or solar energy and battery technologies are not widely used. Despite their name, they are not that rare. The rare earth consumption in the area of ​​the generation of renewable energies is mainly due to the use of permanent magnets for offshore wind energy, which are only used by a small part of the wind
How many Exponential Steps to Mars
When we want to understand the exponential impact to the biosphere Johan Rockström can help, speaking from the World Economic Forum in Zurich: If I take 35 linear steps, I’ll barely reach the coffee stand outside of this room. What happens if I take 35 exponential steps(Steps doubles up)? I’d reach Copenhagen after 21 steps. Three more steps, I’m in New York. Another two steps and I encircle the entire
Solar-power replacement as a solution for hydropower foregone in US dam removals
A new US Study concludes that when all the hydro-dams in the United States were removed and only 50% of the emergent land was used for PVs, 945,062 GWh yr power could be generated, which is 3.44 times the current hydropower generation. Details of this remarkable Study, which estimates only a ‘fixed tilt PVs with a capacity of carefully 2.4 ha per MWp’. Theroretical when we have 20% efficiency so only 0.5
Panel-Level Battery Integration Holds Out Promise of 40 Percent Reductions in So …
New lithium-ion battery energy storage modules integrated with individual solar racking systems and PV panels can reduce the costs of commercial, rooftop solar-plus-storage energy installations (100 kW-500 kW) an average of 40 percent, according to Yotta Solar, developer of the SolarLEAF. Yotta Solar and PanelClaw, a leader manufacturer and vendor of flat-roof solar energy racking systems, recently announced that the latter would integrate SolarLEAF as an attachment to its rooftop racking
