Pumped Storage

By Jarryd Rolfe

working with it
Working with it
  • Between 1976 and 1982 at Dinorwig ,in North Wales a massive project was built and there’s still a little to see as you drive by. Most of it is deep inside the mountain.
pumping it back up
Pumping it back up
  • At night water is pumped to the top reservoir when demands for power across the country are low.
the headgates
The Headgates
  • When there’s a sudden demand for power, the head gates/huge taps are opened, the water is then rushed down the tunnels to drive the turbines and they drive powerful generators. The pump/turbines are handy for two things they can pump the water from the bottom reservoir to the top, and to generate power or electricity.
the advantages of pumped storage
The Advantages of pumped storage
  • Without some means of storing energy for quick release, we’d be in trouble.
  • It has little affect on the landscape.
  • It provides power faster than any other power station.
  • It gives no pollution or waste.
the disadvantages of pumped storage
The Disadvantages of pumped storage
  • It is very expensive to build.
  • Once it’s used, you cannot use it again until you’ve pumped the water back up.
  • But the industry is very good at predicting when the surges in power demand will happen, so good planning can get around this problem.
is it renewable
Is it renewable?
  • It’s not really a power station, but a means of storing energy from other power stations, so the question doesn’t apply
more facts about dinorwig
More Facts About Dinorwig
  • When water is pumped up to the top reservoir called Marchlyn Mawr they are storing gravitational potential energy in it, the greater the height, the more energy is stored.
  • The water falls 600 meters on its way to the turbines, so it’s under a great deal of pressure when it arrives. For this reason, the tunnels are lined with steel at the bottom end.
