  • This is just a crazy concept for renewable energy that i came across, I'm not saying that it will work, I'm saying it could work.

    Basically, this is a scheme of sorts to generate energy by abusing the pressure differences on this planet. What we need is a decently deep body of water and a gas medium preferably denser than water. A flexible "bag" of gas is dropped from a factory down a pipeline into the depths, where the gas becomes pressurized. A simple mechanism at the bottom of the lake transfers the gas from the flexible container to a rigid one. The rigid container is large and takes several bags to fill, once it becomes filled to capacity with pressurized air, it is brought up to a surface generation plant where the pressurized gas is either packaged and sold or used to power gas turbines for power.

    2. well it is all int he efficiency, it coudl work..but the energy needed to move the "bad" downwards willr equiere some sort of mechanism and pressure to fight its upward thrust so.. theres always a loos of energy somewhere. X3

    4. We need alternative forms of clean, renewable energy. We should try it! +followed
