Queensland pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) atlas

Stocks, Matthew; Lu, Bin; Anderson, Kirsten; Nadolny, Anna; Blakers, Andrew


Queensland has many potential sites for pumped hydro energy storage (PHES). The number of upper storage sites located in our initial survey is 1769, with an approximate energy storage potential of 6779 GWh approximately 100 times larger than the amount of storage required to support a 100% renewable electricity grid for Queensland. This large number provides some confidence that there will be a good number of technically feasible PHES sites. Pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is the most mature...[Show more]
