Cultana pumped hydro project: Knowledge sharing report

One of the main challenges faced by the Australian energy sector is integrating a growing share of renewable energy sources in the electricity generation mix, while preserving the security and affordability of energy supply.

A consortium of EnergyAustralia, Arup and the University of Melbourne’s Melbourne Energy Institute (MEI), has undertaken a feasibility study, with funding assistance from ARENA, for a seawater pumped hydro energy storage (SPHES) project at a site on the Cultana Training Area (CTA) near the north-western tip of the Spencer Gulf in SA.
