Vattenfall attempts to store renewable energy in salt


Swedish utility Vattenfall will use salt to store solar and wind power as heat in a Berlin pilot project. “Energy can be stored in salt without loss over weeks and months until it is needed,” said Vattenfall project manager Markus Witt in a press release. Vattenfall said the project could be a contribution to the integration of heating into the power sector.
