NHA Members-Only Pumped Storage Development Council Meeting: Advocacy, Outreach, and Informational Resources

Time: 9:45 AM - 12:00 PM
Room Number: South American
Day: 3/15/2024

This NHA Pumped Storage Development Council meeting (open to any employee of an NHA member organization) features two specific topics.

First, participants learn about a special project by the Council and NHA staff to update the 2021 Pumped Storage Report. This report is crucial to our industry’s advocacy work with energy storage-related policy makers.

Second, participants have a chance to interact with U.S. Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) staff who have written several recently released reports and created several tools relevant to pumped storage on the topics of closed-loop pumped storage, improved construction cost estimates, and cost modeling.

-- What are the big takeaways in these reports?
-- How can NHA member organizations and NHA staff use the takeaways to better advocate for pumped storage with state and federal policy makers?
