Hydropower and Pumped Hydro Energy Storage
For ARENA Insights #17, we turned the spotlight on Hydro Tasmania, who represent Australia in the International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydropower Technology Collaboration Programme through the ARENA-funded International Engagement Program.
Hydropower is the largest source of renewable electricity generation and storage in the world, so it’s important to be at the forefront of the latest knowledge and insights. In this spotlight piece, we capture highlights, challenges and opportunities for hydropower from Australian representatives to the International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydropower Technology Collaboration Programme who are supported through the ARENA-funded International Engagement Program.
Hydro Tasmania representatives Alex Beckitt and Luke Middleton as well as the IEA Hydropower Secretariat, Niels Nielsen, reflect on key hydropower and pumped hydro milestones in Australia and discuss rich lessons learnt from the international experiences.
