This ‘energy train’ energy storage system, enables 2.5 gigawatts of electricity to be stored for an eight-hour period or 400 megawatts for 48 hours.

The energy storage market is blossoming. Because we need renewable energy storage to supply our smart electrical grids at daily moments the demand for energy is high.

In a few years, a huge underground floating railway will store 10% of the Netherlands’ daily energy. 

The energy storage costs will be 10% of the normal costs.

The energy ‘train’ storage system will compensate Dutch peaks and troughs in the supply and demand of green energy like wind and solar.
