  •  Wind Turbine Powered Pump Storage (1+ / 0-)

    Or to draw from classical pumped hydro practices, pump water into a tower during periods of excess generation and then allow the falling water to generate power or to simply store water for some communities.  The approach suggested in the diary reminded me of nothing so much as an underwater pumped hydro design, except that approach uses the hydro turbine as the water handler in both directions.
