I don't know if you guys remember, but back in the good old days of R&D and defense spending the 80's, the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization SDIO now BDMO was funding projects like these and still are.

There most ambitious project was a high temperature super conducting ring for energy storage. This new approach seems to do away with a lot of the problems faced by the old Super Energy ring system.

There is a commercially available example of this Super conductive ring technology.
Last I remember they were going to use it to buffer city power grids.
