Local councils and businesses wish to consider the idea of pumped hydropower as an energy storage option for the Eyre Peninsula and beyond.
You have been asked to conduct a preliminary study to identify one location on the Eyre Peninsula (South Australia) that may be appropriate for a pumped hydropower facility. The client has provided nothing specific, nor any data.
It is expected that you will:
Identify at least one potential area for pumped hydropower systems.
Provide an indication of work required for installation of any farms/systems.
Justify any assumptions you make.
Remember that you are writing a consulting report for the client/consortium that wish to invest in the establishment of one or more wind farms. Consequently, this report may be read by technical experts, and/or non-technical staff. You should have the following sections in the report:
I expect to see an analysis related to elevation, potential power generation, reservoir volumes and thus potential energy availability, diameter, length, and flow rates related to penstocks.
