Mountain Gravity Energy Storage: A new solution for closing the gap between existing short- and long-term storage technologies - ScienceDirect
MGES is a sand bucket chairlift style energy storage system, that can also carry up water on the side. Interesting takeaway that pumped hydro systems are limited to 1200m height difference due to excessive hydraulic pressure, but a potential energy system based on hauling solids doesn't face this limitation.

waterless, concreteless 3D contour forming structures.This could be a real price breakthrough, provided the forming apparatus can be made cheaply and the inorganic binding ink doesn't cost an arm and a leg, or has other undesirable attributes.
