Renewable energy is the future. Wind and solar energy production depends strongly on weather conditions, so sustainable energy storage is required. Pumped hydro storage is worldwide most used to provide large-scale energy storage. The lack of substantial natural head and of efficient low-head turbine technology has kept this energy storage option out of the picture in low-lying areas – until now.
Optimized turbines for low head (10-20m) with Power Take Off and Grid Integrators developed by ALPHEUS are a game changer. Pumped hydro storage for low-lying areas is now available for implementation. With a panel of international experts, the potential for a large 2 GW dam in the North Sea will be presented
This event will take place on 16 March at 2 pm CET.
