Key to reliable renewables
10 December, 2021
Decarbonisation of the global energy system is key to tackling climate change. However, without sufficient long duration energy storage to provide reliability for intermittent renewables such as wind and solar power, the success of the clean energy transition could be at risk. As the International Forum on Pumped Storage Hydropower highlights, pumped storage has an increasingly important role to play in the years ahead. Suzanne Pritchard reports
