Tasmania pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) atlas

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


Tasmania has many potential sites for pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) sites due to its mountainous nature. We found a total of 2075 potential sites with a combined energy storage potential that is about ten times larger than required to support a 100% renewable electricity grid for the whole of Australia. The large number of sites provides some confidence that there will be a good number of technically feasible PHES sites.
