Ooo... Look... Energy Storage!

Flywheel Storage Technology

OK, doesn't generate any more electricity, so won't help with increased demand really and who knows what the energy wastage is of one of these things or even the cost.

However, anything that will help store energy to even out the supply-demand cycles of the power grid has to be worth looking into. Also should help make renewables more feasible (although still not capable of supplying our entire needs).
