In the next ten years, the market for pumped-storage power plants will grow like never
before. Until 2020, more than 60 new plants with an installed capacity of about 27
gigawatts will be constructed – which represents about the half of the current
pumped-storage power plant stock and an investment volume of almost 26 billion euros.

The main reason for this beginning boom is the growing share of renewable energies of
the total electricity generation – in the future, most notably, load fluctuations caused
by energy from wind power and photovoltaics have to be compensated by storage.

The construction will focus on countries with proper natural conditions for
pumped-storage power plants. Hence, first and foremost, facilities will be built in
mountainous countries like Austria, Switzerland, Spain or Norway.

In the light of this development, a team of experts analysed the European market for
pumped-storage power plants
