Advanced Pumped Storage Hydropower

Argonne has been awarded funding by the DOE’s Water Power Program to develop detailed models of advanced pumped storage hydropower (PSH) plants with the goal to analyze their technical capabilities to provide various grid services and to assess the value of these services under different market structures and under various levels of renewable energy resources in the system. In addition to Argonne, the project team also includes Siemens PTI, Energy Exemplar, MWH Americas and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
