Energy Storage in Stacked Concrete Blocks

Thursday, March 14

10:00 am - 10:30 am

Energy Vault, an Innovation Pioneer, is developing a modular, highly scalable, gravity-based energy storage system to enable grid-scale integration of intermittent renewable energy sources. Inspired by pumped hydro, their technology replaces the water with custom-made low-cost cylindrical blocks constructed from waste debris and concrete materials and topography with cranes.
