Pumped storage hydropower (PSH) operates by storing electricity in the form of gravitational potential energy through pumping water from a lower to an upper reservoir.
This report aims to improve understanding on the role of PSH in the clean energy transition and compare PSH capabilities and costs with other sources of energy storage and system flexibility options.
