In this episode we explore all things hydro power related including the exciting opportunities of pumped hydro. Wind and Solar are renewable resources which vary significantly based on the weather, so technology to store this energy for use when demand increases is becoming important. While batteries have limitations to store all this extra renewable energy, pumped hydro presents an improved large-scale energy storage solution.
