Pumped storage could solve the storage problem if sufficient sites could be found

Pumped Storage is the method of storing electrical energy by using it to pump water from a low-level to a high-level reservoir. The energy is retrieved by reversing the process, in which the pumps become generators and the water is released back to the lower level. In the UK the best-known example is Dinorwig in [...]
