    The electrotechnical and mechanical engineers are ready, it’s just that the chemical engineers are slow.

    You might wish to reconsider gravity storage, which is the dead simple idea of storing and releasing the gravitational potential energy of a weight in a hole, as we've discussed here before. A 1 Km deep hole 100mx100m across can store about 2 GWh using 1m thick lead. The Oz Tesla battery for 2 GWh would cost about $1B. Can gravity do better? - at least it would not degrade over time like Lithium-ion does.

    In my experience birds kill off solar panels by shitting on them. The ammonia leaches in and destroys everything.

    How about good old Edison iron-nickel? Batteries should last a century or two.

    Why bother with gravity? The osmotic pressure of seawater corresponds to the pressure at the bottom of a column of water 300m high. To store energy just concentrate salt water.
