US firm’s first gravity-power plant set to go live in China

Energy Vault | 18 March 2024

US company Energy Vault’s first commercial-scale gravity energy storage plant is preparing to go live in Jiangsu province, China.
The 100MWh project in Rudong district uses the New York-listed company’s EVx gravity energy storage system.

It works in the same way as a pumped storage hydro plant, but uses excess energy from renewable generation to lift blocks rather than water.

Rudong is located next to a wind farm.

The plant was connected to the Chinese grid in December and is now undergoing commissioning. Energy Vault has not said when it will become fully operational...
