Nooooooo! Just too simple. Too good to be true.

But, in the end, , , , , , it is not very interesting and, as such, not many people take the time to grok just how simple it is. Similar to the gravity batteries.

Awesome!

Now Germany's wind power is making and breaking energy records:

Germany generates record amount of electricity from wind

Germany generated a record amount of electricity from wind on Wednesday, topping 50,000 megawatts.

Bloomberg reported that data from the European Energy Exchange (EEX) shows Germany's windfarms produced 50,232 megawatts as much of Europe is experiencing unusually mild winter temperatures. The total output of electricity is projected to drop before rising again on Friday.

The electrical output for Germany from wind power previously got as high as 46,500 megawatts in the past year, according to EEX.

Multiple cities in Europe, including Berlin and Warsaw, are experiencing their warmest starts of the year ever, Bloomberg reported.

The record electricity comes as Europe faces an energy crisis, largely fueled by Russia cutting off its access to natural gas as the war in Ukraine has continued.

Technically the sand battery is not a battery. Batteries store electricity. The sand battery stores heat. You can argue the sand stores energy, but you are not going to get electricity out of it. It is not economically feesable until you make a surplus of renewable electricity.

Thats true until they add the turbine to it.
