The water footprint of water conservation using shade balls in California | Nature Sustainability
So reservoir shade balls might be a net negative unless they stay floating in the lake for a while (say 3 years of drought)

Combining a pebble thermal energy store for thermal energy recovery with tunneled underground air cavities for CAES. Possible boost of the thermal store with CPV or CSP systems. Maybe using vertically bored tunnels as well? Are they stuffing the air cavities with pebbles for thermal storage too?

A Stove That Cooks With Molten Salt
Time shifting solar cooking with molten salt, so you don't have to bake under the hot sun with a normal solar cooker to cook something. Because most people really want to cook in the evenings.

DLR Blogs - Energie-Frage der Woche: Mit welcher Technik lässt sich Energie überhaupt speichern?
So this dude Mathias Popp is applying for (or has) a patent for an above-ground pumped hydro reservoir design using an earthen ringwall island in the middle of a converted open pit mine lake. Apparently there is a trend to convert disused open pit mines to lakes anyways, and considering the mine itself is considered already fowled and "brownfield", it shouldn't be that hard to make the center island ring.
