Dominion Energy wants to build pumped hydro storage facility in coalfields

Dominion Energy wants to build pumped hydro storage facility in coalfields

Virginia-based utility Dominion Energy’s plan to turn an abandoned coal mine into a pumped storage hydro facility is unique, but not new. North-Rhine Westphalia in Germany earlier this year said that it will turn its Prosper-Haniel coal mine into a 200-MW pumped storage facility. The consortium behind the project includes the University of Duisburg-Essen and mine owner RAG AG. It’s too early in the process to know what the Dominion project capacity might be, but the company says it plans to pick a site early next year.
