Huff 'n' puff geothermal fracking: Earth Batteries at 200% efficiency.

Sage Geosystems has developed a unique energy storage method called the "huff & puff" technique, inspired by a process used in oil production for renewable energy purposes. This method involves injecting dense drilling mud into underground rock formations at disused oil wells, creating fractures. Water is then pumped into these fractures, and excess renewable energy, collected during daylight hours, is used for this process. A valve is closed to lock the water in place. To retrieve the energy, collected during daylight hours, is used for this process. A valve is closed to lock the water in place. To retrieve the energy, the valve is reopened, allowing the pressure from the surrounding rock to squeeze the fractures shut and force the water back up through pipes, where it can be used to generate electricity through a turbine. This innovative system achieves around 70% efficiency for energy recovery and up to 200% efficiency if heat energy is also harvested. This approach offers a promising way to store and utilize excess energy efficiently. https://newatlas.com/energy/sage-geosystems-huff-puff/

      Interesting concept, but it's important to consider the potential environmental impacts and ensure proper regulation before implementing widespread use of geothermal fracking.

              The ability to lock water in place for later energy retrieval is a smart way to maximize the use of excess renewable energy.
