Pumped Hydropower Energy Storage

Pumped hydropower storage (PHES) is currently the most effective and widespread solution for energy storage, accounting for more than 95% of the world’s capacity. However, PHES is still not sufficient to fully enable storing renewable energy at times of overproduction.
Dr. Alterach, Expert Engineer from the Sustainable Development and Energy Sources Department of RSE S.p.A. (Research on the Energy System), will give an overview and the future outlook
