Pumped Storage Plants


Pumped Storage Plants

Pumped storage is a tried and tested technology which has been success­fully used for energy storage for over a century. For energy transition, pumped storage plants are essential to balance fluctuating production (e.g. through wind and solar power plants) and to ensure grid stabi­liz­ation. Consi­dering that pumped storage plants have a service life of around 100 years, the investment and operating costs for plants with capacities of up to 1,000 MW and more, are very low in compa­rison to other storage technologies.

With more than 35 years of experience in hydro­power, dam and river engineering, and more than 20 years of experience in planning pumped storage plants, ILF has the know-how to support clients worldwide. ILF has been and continues to be involved in some of the largest pumped storage projects in Central Europe, being today one of the leading planners in this field.

ILF covers all disci­plines required for imple­menting energy transition, and has a wealth of experience and know-how in all currently available storage techno­logies (e.g. physical, electrical, electro­che­mical, chemical and thermal storage).

Providing consul­tancy services on all topics related to energy system planning, network planning (including electrical grids and trans­mission lines), energy saving potential, energy storage and alter­native forms of energy, ILF is your experi­enced partner for energy transition.
