Primed for Pumped Hydro

Pumped hydro could solve a lot of problems in the electricity market as variable renewable energy sources replace coal-fired generation. EcoGeneration asked a panel of experts how this massive form of storage can reshape the NEM and set us on track for a clean energy future.
