1 Source: Results for the European PHS potential. A GIS based study Marcos Gimeno-Gutiérrez Roberto Lacal-Arántegui

2 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 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

4 4 Improvements on the JRC/UCC model DescriptionOriginal T1Current T1Original T2Current T2 Maximum distance between two existing or one existing and any prospective reservoirs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5-km1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20-km1, 2, 3, 4, 5-km1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20-km Minimum head150 m 150m generally, 50m added at 5km Assumed minimum new reservoir capacity m m m m 3 Minimum distance to UNESCO site5 km500 m5 km500 m Maximum distance to electricity transmission network 50 km20 km50 km20 km

5 5 Sites with largest energy storage potential How the model worksSites in 5-km scenario

6 6 Best sites within 5 kmHow the model works

7 7 Results Contains: Complete assessment of potential sites, for both T1 and T2 With results for 31 European countries from an improved model Support to decision making
