Source: www.lasprovincias.es Results for the European PHS potential. A GIS based study Marcos Gimeno-Gutiérrez Roberto Lacal-Arántegui
2 Background RE goals (20% by 2020) require interconnections, energy storage, flexible generation and demand-side management. Pumped hydropower storage (PHS) is the only storage that can contribute significantly to the 2020 goals. There were no other previous studies assessing the European PHS potential.
3 ASSETS assessment of the European PHS potential. Define a GIS-based methodology (2011) Validate it with industry and academia (workshop April 2012) JRC Improvements Application to assess the European potential Objective
