  • Objective

    Next to the other energy storage technologies, such as phase change materials, batteries and CAES, pumped hydro is another option for energy storage. Pumped hydro storage uses two water reservoirs which are separated vertically. In times of excess electricity, often off peak hours, water is pumped from the lower reservoir to the upper reservoir. When required, the water flow is reversed and guided through turbines to generate electricity.

    The objective of the Upper Cisokan Pumped Storage (UCPS) Power Project for Indonesia is to significantly increase the peaking capacity of the power generation system in Java-Bali in an environmentally and socially sustainable way and strengthen the institutional capacity of the project implementing entity Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) in hydropower planning, development and operation. There are three components to the project.
