Solution for storing solar energy : This is the VOSS

Today the energy that costs the cheapest to produce is solar energy. But the problem for the use of solar is that it is intermittent. To smooth the production of a solar power plant over 24 hours, it is necessary to store the electricity produced during the day to satisfy the needs during the night. Classic Solution: Batteries that are costly and should be recycled at the end of life. Known Alternative: Flywheels in steel or composite materials that are cylinders that rotate and transform solar energy into kinetic energy. The VOSS for solar storage wheel or perpetual battery is a new type of steering wheel with compressed concrete, which would withstand centrifugal force: which is a less costly solution to store energy…
