Abstract:The development of renewable generation induces a higher variability on the electricity system. The balancing areas have now to cope with uncertainty both form the consumption side and production side. Additional electricity generation flexibility is therefore required. Energy Storage is one of the solutions to bring this flexibility to the network. Pumped Hydro Storage Plant is the only available mature technology providing electricity storage. Alstom Hydro is the market leader for providing pumped hydro storage plants equipment. Alstom has recently equiped most of the new Pumped Hydro Storage plants developed in China and has just inaugurated its world largest hydro equipment manufacturing site in TianJin.

The presentation will address the following topics:

· Alstom activities in China;

· The complementarity between intermittent generation and pumped hydro storage will be explained;

· The latest technology of Variable Speed pumped hydro storage plant will be presented.
