Cambodian energy delegates recently met with researchers from the The Australian National University (ANU) to explore the potential of Pumped Hydro Energy Storage (PHES) systems in building Cambodia's clean energy future.


PHES is a water-based energy storage solution that uses two reservoirs at different elevations. Water flows from the higher reservoir to the lower one through a turbine, generating electricity. 


ANU has identified 55 potential PHES sites in Cambodia, offering over 1,300 GWh of storage capacity!


Delegates also met with representatives from Snowy Hydro, Australia's leading PHES operator, who provided insights on optimising PHES operations for maximum efficiency. By using resources responsibly and minimising environmental impact, PHES offers a valuable energy storage solution.
