In the battle to decarbonize our electricity supply hydropower is a key weapon (in those places where geography permits). It can be either a source of green energy (as rain fills up mountain reservoirs) or, in the case of pumped hydro, a partially “self-recharging battery”, storing excessive green energy for later use.  Dialing hydro power up and down in response to demand has its own challenges though, due to the massive scale of ...
