Smack-dab what I was lkooing for-ty!
Hi, thank you for the comment! a pleasure!
I have been thinking of ways to store excess energy and then to use it. In many countries electricity costs significantly less at night than during the day. So it would be nice to accumulate energy at night and then to spend it during day hours. But how can one do it? Using batteries? Too expensive. Using gyroscopic accumulators – too complex and too expensive. Gravity! This is a solution. But to accumulate enough energy for practical uses, one would have to lift a lot of weight to a high altitude. It is possible to build a 100-foot tower and lift a box filled with earth weighing 100 tons or concrete to that altitude at night and drive a generator with that energy during the day. But you need horizontal and vertical space for that tower. But how about lifting the entire house? Maybe, not 30 meters, but some 5 meters – this would allow to save a lot on difference in cost of electricity produced at night and day because a typical house weighs about 100 tons or even more. Also, such a system would help avoid floods and tsunamis. Just imagine: you press a button, and you house is 5 meters in the air in a few hours or even a few minutes!
Great concept! This would definately make a difference in South Africa and other flood/tsunami stricken communities around the world. Make it happen! You have our full support
Yes, I believe it would work, but is there a more practical solution? For example, energy can be converted into many means, stored as pressure, potential energy, Hydrogen gas etc. If excess energy is stored from the night time generation , you could use these means and then convert it back again, it would depend on practicality, efficiency and cost.
I will take a look into it:-) Thank you.
