Security of Energy Supply

European Relevance

Silvermines Hydro closely matches the European Union’s regional needs in accordance with the ENTSO-E Regional Investment Plan 2017. The region is undergoing a shift from thermal to renewable generation and energy storage is needed to support this transition.

Silvermines Hydro (project no. 1025) is one of the 19 European grid-scale storage projects referenced in the European Union’s ENTSO-E Ten Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) 2018.

Silvermines Hydro is a candidate Project of Common Interest (PCI) and seeking inclusion in the EU’s PCI 4th list in 2019.  PCIs are key infrastructure projects; mainly grid-scale storage projects and interconnectors that link the energy systems of EU countries and help the EU and Member States achieve their energy policy and climate objectives; affordable, secure and sustainable energy for all citizens, and the long-term decarbonisation of the economy in accordance with the Paris Agreement.
