Load Cycles / Response Time / Self-Discharge Rate

The number of load cycles is unlimited. No number of load cycles would lead to a loss of storage capacity or efficiency.

The response time is within the range of a few seconds. Due to the simple arrangement of the components Buoyant Energy exceeds even the excellent characteristics of conventional pumped storage plants.

The system’s self-discharge rate depends on the tightness of the valves at the pumps and turbines, but the range in difference is expected to be irrelevantly small.
