Typically salt domes are used for storage. At high enough pressure to be usable the salt melts. Rocks and steel would eventually, too. If you extract the heat you are subject to the Carnot limits to efficiency. Batteries avoid this.

Ok, now I feel dirty. Using 'Carnot' in a general discussion feels wrong.

That would be interesting if Tamino himself had been an actual scientist, publishing his rebuttal in a peer reviewed journal.

Tamino is Grant Foster, a statistician who does publish in peer reviewed literature. In my opinion, this will likely be published unless someone else beats him to it. That will at best take a long time, while this can show up immediately.
