Mechanical Energy Storage System

Project number: 
Resolution Copper
Academic year: 
Design a mechanical energy storage system utilizing the unique characteristics of the Resolution Copper Mining property. The Resolution Copper project is a proposed underground mine 60 miles east of Phoenix, Arizona, near the town of Superior. The mine was in operation under Magma Copper Company from 1911-1996. Due to the long historical operation of the mine, there are unique characteristics on the property including old mine shafts (potentially ~4,000 feet deep), water systems and terrain which present an opportunity to utilize for a mechanical energy storage system. This project is an opportunity to be creative, make an impression, and transform an industry.
