#### What is Gravity Energy Storage & How It is Work?

Gravity energy storage is a form of mechanical energy storage that uses the earth''s gravity to store energy. The energy is stored in the form of potential energy, which is the energy that an object possesses due to its position relative to other objects. The higher an object is placed, the greater its potential energy.

#### Why don''t we use weights to store energy?

Just the weights we use are made not from lead, but from water. Many water reservoirs are also used to store energy by pumping water up when you have energy surplus, and letting it come down through the generators when you need energy. All you need for this purpose is two or more reservoirs at different altitudes. Share.
