|It cannae be done, Capn|
And yet that is what the BBC claims in an article on a Scottish power station which it says "creates and stores energy."
As we all know you cannot destroy or create energy. First Law of Thermodynamics. Or, as that ground-breaking physicist Ecclesiastes put it, "There is nothing new under the sun."
The only way a Scottish mountain could fairly be said to "create" energy would be if it were a nuclear mountain. And even then, in accordance with Einstein's equation, only by the conversion of an equivalent mass to the energy.
Nae, capn. The Scottish mountain is merely converting energy - between potential and electric. Not the same thing as creating it at all.
