Energy Storage

Wind energy storage by the reuse of abandoned mines

The scientific study proved at the example of two abandoned mines located in the Harz and the Erzgebirge that it is technically possible to reuse these as underground hydrodynamic pumped storage power plants and to store locally electrical energy generated by wind power. (The Study is available only in German.)
