University of Adelaide's Environment Institute talk recently claimed we could build a 'battery' — a large hydro dam — that could hypothetically power Australia for 10 hours when renewables go down!

The idea was that a 20 meter shallow but large area hydro dam could be built at the top of the Australian Bite. Pump it full of seawater, and then run it back down the 90 meter cliff when you want to use energy.


That's the kind of scheme that could *almost* convince me we could solve intermittent renewable energy.

But I didn't hear what paper had verified it was cost effective? Anyone?
