“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.

Harvesting drinking water from the air with the power of space
Obtaining fresh drinking water from the air has been very energy intensive for a long time. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now invented a current less technology that uses the cooling of space for this. The new device essentially consists of a specially coated pane of glass that both reflects solar radiation and radiates its own heat into space via the atmosphere. As a result, it cools down to 15 degrees
Create your Green Bond or Crowdfunding for free
For me social Photovoltaics is very exciting. Imagine you are struggling to afford electricity bills and the power of sun helps you, so the grid provider can hardly cut you off. So in the current situation everybody wants to save money.  Most people will rush to switch to the cheapest Electricity Provider and the cheapest Option these Days is the Sun. Even the International Energy Agency tells us these days that photovoltaics

he photovoltaic industry has made tremendous progress and is the cheapest way to build new electricity production capacity worldwide. Another positive feature is that photovoltaics produce no emissions. Finally, the danger of fine dust as a possible intensifier of the course of a coronavirus disease has also caught the attention of the media. ? We should focus much more on resilient and decentralized solar energy, also to improve the health, living conditions and financial
Calculate Corona doubling by yourself
"The greatest weakness of humanity is its inability to understand the exponential function," said physicist Al Bartlett in his book "The Essential Exponential!" written. For Example there are 112 (known) corona cases in Austria today and the rate of duplication (outside of China) is 4 days. So could there be 1 million cases in Austria in just over a month? Do the calculations yourself with this doubling calculator: http://www.pv4.eu/calculate-corona-doubling-by-yourself_2048.html But you can use
