Session 8B: Words That Work – Communicating the Value and Role of Pumped Storage

Storage in electricity markets is the foundation for a 100% clean energy future. More and more, policy makers hear the promise of new storage technologies.

How do we successfully tell our industry’s story? What data can we use to bolster our claims about the immense benefits of pumped storage hydro?

As discussions in Congress and at Statehouses focus on the need for long-duration storage how do we ensure pumped storage is “at the table” instead of just “on the menu” in these discussions?

How can the industry cut through the noise to ensure that pumped storage is seen as a vital part of our storage future?

What progress is being made and what is the “call to action” for industry?

Bonus! Also in this session, hear from the U.S. Department of Energy about new tools available for quantifying the value of pumped storage.
