Gravity energy storage systems an option at South Africa’s coal power stations

Energy Vault | 5 June 2023

Consultancy Sizana Solutions says gravity energy storage systems (GESS) fit in “beautifully” with South Africa’s just energy transition, as it can create multiple thousands of jobs while constructing energy storage assets and drive environmental restoration, especially at soon-to-be decommissioned coal-fired power stations.

Sizana, the appointed consultant of NYSE-listed Energy Vault in Southern Africa, affirms that there are multiple viable opportunities for GESS in the country, particularly as it offers a lower life cycle cost compared with most other energy storage mediums owing to its long life and no degradation.
