Agelbert NOTE: Israel has finally demonstrated a tremendous capacity for the obvious.  ;) ;D  I mean, DUH, it's hotter than a pistol over there with SUN, SUN and MORE SUN baking the stuffing out of the plant life, the animals, the bugs and the people for at least the last 2,000 YEARS and more. Pumped storage is the ultimate low maintenace cost, base load level, INSTANT on demand, Renewable Energy Storage medium. And putting a water surface where there is a lot of desert increases the relative humidity in the surrounding area, thereby aiding in plant life proliferation and desert greening. Yeah, I know, who coulda knowd? 

It has never ceased to amaze me how so many gooberments all over the world can "justify" taxing we-the-people to build pipelines hundreds of miles long to move hydrocarbon CRAP from here to there, over ALL KINDS of terrain, but somehow never seem to be been able to DO THAT with ocean OR fresh water UPHILL (except for the extremely short pipes right next to dams that have some minuscule pumped storage equipment).  The fossil fuel industry will indignantly claim they pay to build the pipelines, not the gooberment. That is a very clever LIE. In 1987 our fossil fuel gooberment gave the lie to that half truth, but most people, OF COURSE, are not aware of that, thanks to all that "SILENCE" from the mainstream media.

Better late than never, I suppose.

GE To Build 344 Megawatt Kokhav Hayarden Hydro Pumped Storage Station In Israel

August 10th, 2017 by Joshua S Hill


GE Renewable Energy has landed the contract to supply and build the 344-megawatt Kokhav Hayarden hydro pumped storage station in Israel, which is expected to help stabilize the country’s electricity grid.

On Tuesday, GE Renewable Energy revealed that it had booked a turnkey contract with Israeli utility Star Pumped Storage, in which GE will design, manufacture, supply, and install all the necessary electro-mechanical and hydro-mechanical equipment for the 344 MW (megawatt) Kokhav Hayarden hydro pumped storage station. GE will also complete a balance of plant for the two 172 MW pumped-storage units, as well as provide 20 years of operation and maintenance for the project.

The Kokhav Hayarden project will see development take 52 months, and involve the construction of two reservoirs, and is expected to be commissioned in 2021.
