    We all know that electricity is typically stored as potential energy
    by pumping water to a higher level but this Australian project
    takes that to a completely different level. In more ways than one.

    Maybe someone should tell Trump? (Who famously said the lights
    go out when the wind stops blowing if you rely on wind turbines)

    Boy you really know how to come back with a stinging rebuke.

    Hm. Sounds like Pykrete. Or communism. Good in theory, doesn't work in practice.

    You sure you are in the right thread? This is about storing electricity presumably made by wind or solar.
