Pumped storage hydropower (PSH) in the Himalayas (Sikkim State, India; Nepal; Bhutan) to accelerate the transition to zero/low carbon electricity grids in the region.



The overall project objective is that the state of Sikkim has sufficient environmentally and socially sustainable PSH and other Electrical Energy Storage (EES) to support 100% renewable electricity grids. The project is driven by the need for an integrated renewable (solar/ hydro) electricity system that enables rapid decarbonisation and has development benefits supplying energy to other jurisdictions.
