Gravity – the solution to energy storage?

Heindl’s Gravity Storage, which uses the gravitational power of a huge mass of rock to store large amounts of electricity. Lithium-ion batteries seem to be used everywhere – from tablets and smart phones, to electric vehicles, to large-scale stationary storage systems like Tesla’s mega-battery in South Australia. Key to this success is their modularity – the ability to stack any number of battery cells together to create storage systems of any size. As a result, over the past 20 years, the cost of lithium-ion batteries has plummeted. Initially, this was brought about by the mass manufacturing of lithium-ion battery cells for consumer electronics. It made them an attractive option for use in
