# Thread: Could this clockwork compete with other storage methods?

1. I invented this clockwork of very high ratios to store renewable energy in form of weight falling into deep oceans or wells or to store energy in carbon nanotube super springs :

How the machine works:

Picture:

My machine solve several stage clockwork by avoiding connecting gears directly , however by discharging the energy in steps.

Group number 6 consisted of gear #2 and gear #4 , it moves from side to side continuously to transfer energy between the gears.When the group No (6) moves from right to left rod #8 will release gear #1 and at the same time small gear #2 will touch big gear #1, gear #1 will transfer some of its energy to weaker spring in gear #2, also at the same time small gear #4 will touch big gear #3, so that gear #3 will transfer some of its energy to weaker spring in gear #4.

The opposite happens when the group No (6) moves from left to right:

1) Rod #8 stops gear #1 to save energy.

2) Big gear #2 will touch small gear #3 to transfer some energy to it and to be stored.

3) Big gear #4 will touch small gear #5 to transfer its energy .

Two of these clockworks could work alternately to provide continuous motion.

Oceans' depth can reach up to 11 km I can use depths like 1-4 km

For oceans I would use huge empty boxes to bear the clockwork and the weight on water surface

Potential energy storage (on the sides of mountains, or in the form of pumped hydro, or in the form of weights lowered down wells) can indeed store a significant amount of energy. Springs, in general, can't.

There would undoubtedly be some gearing to transform the change of altitude into energy, but the gearing is pretty straightforward.

renewable energy of solar panels and wind turbines and to be transformed again to electricity with a generator, storing renewable energy will make it available day and night and will reduce dependence on fossil fuel

I think the question being asked is what energy is being saved by your machine compared to already existing forms of renewable energy such as solar panels and wind turbines. We don't actually need to be sold on the benefits of renewable energy.
