Our lead story today highlights an innovative energy approach from a Netherlands-based company called Ocean Grazer. Tied to existing wind farms, the team’s “Ocean Battery” pumps water from solid subsea reservoirs into flexible bladders located just above the seabed. When there is a demand for power, the water, pressurized naturally by the ocean, is routed through hydroturbines to generate electricity.

The Battery could potentially store excess energy and act as an offshore moderator of supply and demand – an intriguing perk as the world increasingly turns to renewable power.

What do you think? Will ‘Ocean Batteries’ Catch On?
