    Pumped-Storage Hydropower Projects Attractive Means of Storing Excess Energy

    Pumped-storage hydropower projects may be the best means of storing solar and wind energy on the electrical grid, according to a paper published recently by Stanford University researchers. The study, titled, "The energetic implications of curtailing versus storing solar- and wind-generated electricity", examines various options in dealing with excess power produced by intermittent renewables and the cost effectiveness of energy storage systems.
