geothermal power, student smartphones, traffic deaths, and EV range improvement
This seems really cool, from reading the article, the innovation seems to be that with standard geothermal, it's either on or off. If it's off, you're not making money, so it's worthless, but with this experimental plant, when they turn it off, it builds up energy to be released later.
