Delivering Sustainable Innovation for a Net-Zero Future

About the project

Glen Earrach Energy, which means "Valley of Spring" in Gaelic, stands at the forefront of energy innovation. The Pumped Storage Hydro (PSH) project, located at Balmacaan Estate, Scotland, is a critical component for achieving a net-zero grid by 2030. 

 

The project prioritises environmental preservation and biodiversity enhancement while achieving outstanding efficiency in energy storage and generation.

 

This ensures a healthier and more sustainable balance between harnessing natural energy resources and the maintenance and reinforcement of the surrounding ecosystem.

About Pumped Storage Hydro

Pumped Storage Hydro is a sustainable and reliable electricity storage solution, leveraging the gravitational force of water between two reservoirs at different elevations. In times of low demand, excess energy is used to pump water to the higher reservoir, storing energy. When demand peaks, the stored water is released to generate electricity, offering a balanced and responsive energy supply.
