The South Australian Pumped Hydro Atlas is now available
South Australia has many potential sites for pumped hydro energy storage (PHES).
The number of upper storage sites provides some confidence that there will be a good
number of technically feasible PHES sites in SA. Site searching and development of a
PHES cost model are being explored as part of an ARENA funded project.
The South Australia pumped hydro energy storage atlas, and other supporting information,
is now available to download from this website,
as is a press release summarising the work.
Our work has been featured by ABC News,
and the Minister for the Environment and Energy.
