Gravitricity is an energy technology company that uses heavyweights to store energy underground. The company uses winches to raise a heavyweight to the top of a vertical shaft to store electricity in the form of potential energy when there is excess energy on the grid.

Gravitricity argues that the system can be charged and discharged multiple times a day for over 25 years. The company has built a 250kW concept demo in Edinburgh. It aims to become a contender in the energy storage market that is predicted to become a $620 billion market by 2040.
