THIS IDEA came from when the British Government started to close coal mines in the mid eighties. This led to huge unrest in the mining communities in the UK, where riots and loss of life ensued.
I thought about how such a waste of engineering and excavation could be utilised into something else. This could probably help keep the jobs for the miners in similar work in their mines, but turning them into hydro-electricity plants.
The diagrams shown prove that this could have been achieved, and my idea has created a battery. This was explained to me by a professor from Wolverhampton University. I took my idea to Wolverhampton University for them to look at.
As individual energy producers of solar and wind, the public could share in these huge clean batteries rather than very expansive lithium batteries in their homes. Lithium batteries also cause damage as the ore is sometimes mined from rain forests.
We have the three common factors for these systems in the UK; water, engineering skills and gravity. Many countries around the world have these commodities too, so energy can be harnessed in a very clean and efficient way.
Hydro and gravity are infinite products and once constructed, totally green except for maintenance.
