Energy Vault has created the world’s only cost-effective, utility-scale gravity-based energy storage system that is not dependent on land topography or specific geology underground. Compared to incumbent stationary energy storage solutions—most notably chemical batteries—Energy Vault provides a sustainable alternative that doesn’t degrade and has competitive performance with round-trip efficiency between 80-90%–all at a significantly lower initial CapEx and levelized cost per kilowatt-hour price point.
