November, 2012 – February, 2014:
Our project team has analyzed dozens of various energy storage techniques.
We started development of a lab-scale plant functioning as a small-sized energy storage that stores electric energy in the form of potential energy of solid substances. We performed numerous tests and developed a new load-lifting technology.
We built a prototype of the LWS utilizing our new load-lifting technology.
We plan to have an industrial pilot LWS launched by 2020. Approbation of the implemented solutions will allow us to have the first industrial sample of LWS put in commission by year 2023.
