Yeah, but this is about storage, not production; and doesn't require a river or an ocean as an energy source. And it doesn't necessarily have to be installed on an industrial scale. A single house, or a neighborhood, could use a system like this to bank whatever transient energy sources might be available to them.

Btw, I've just been moved from 95% work at home to a mostly on site presence. Feugh.
