Inside Electric Mountain: Britain's biggest rechargeable battery


Re: Now build a few dozen more...

Sorry, folks, you wanted wind and solar to power nations.

No, I never did, because it cant.

You need power storage that can match those demands and there's no simple, cheap solution.

There's no solution at all, even complex and expensive. Especially in terms of storing summer solar energy for winter usage.

Renewable energy is pretty much dead in the water as any competent electrical engineer can calculate for you. It doesn't work now and it never will.

Largely its there to make money out of stupid consumers and to buy stupid green votes with.

On those terms its been a spectacular success. It just fails to generate useful net amounts of energy at costs exceeding even the most ill-conceived nuclear plant...
