Gravity energy storage
A new form of renewable energy storage to power a cleaner world
As the world generates more and more electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources, there is a growing need for technologies which can capture and store energy during periods of low demand and release it rapidly when required.
Fast, long-life energy storage
At Gravitricity we are developing a novel storage technology which offers some of the best characteristics of lithium batteries and pumped hydro storage.
Ideally suited to network-constrained users and operators, distribution networks and major power users, the technology operates in the 1MW to 20 MW power range and enables existing grid infrastructure to go further in a renewable energy world.
50-year design life
with no cycle limit or degradation
Response time & efficiency
zero to full power in less than one second
Versatility & simplicity
can run slowly at low power or fast at high power
levelised costs well below lithium batteries
