Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage Technology

Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage (PHES) is a form of energy storage technique that is based on the storage of large amount of water at a high elevation. This is accomplished with two water reservoirs (artificial, lake or sea) which are at two different elevations (pressure heads), by pumping water from the lower elevation to the… Continue reading Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage Technology


Grid Level Energy Storage

Have you been wondering, like many, what is Grid Energy Storage and why is there so much talk about large-scale energy storage? Well, grid energy storage systems (ESS) are large-scale facilities used to store energy in some form or the other (electrical, chemical, potential, gravitational, etc) within an electric power grid. Energy is stored during times… Continue reading Grid Level Energy Storage
