How to store electricity?  – Battery parks as an alternative to mega power plants

The planned power plant in Kaunertal, costing two billion euros, will also serve as a gigantic electricity storage facility for wind and solar energy. But there are alternatives in the form of decentralized battery parks. Tyrolean politics provides some interesting figures.

Hardly a session of the state parliament goes by without the topics of climate protection and energy transition being debated in some form or another. The black-red coalition preaches the expansion of hydropower as an irrefutable cornerstone of the future supply, apart from fossil fuels such as coal and oil. The expansion of the Kaunertal/Platzertal power plant is planned as a specific project. This type of pumped storage is considered a key technology for storing large amounts of energy seasonally and not only on a daily basis, and also for stabilizing the electricity grid.
