Turning Point Generation (TPG) is developing a pumped hydro storage site in Alberta, Canada.

According to the company, the project is anticipated to have a design capacity between 80 MW and 150 MW and provide sufficient storage to generate about 8 hours of electricity at full capacity. TPG adds that the energy storage solution will be connected to the Alberta transmission system.

"We believe the Alberta power market provides an economical basis for pumped storage at this time, and the market indications are showing increasingly favorable economics for pumped storage in the future," says TPG's Peter Bubik.
