List of pumped-storage hydroelectric power stations
The following page lists all pumped-storage hydroelectric power stations that are larger than 1,000 MW in net generating capacity, which are currently operational or under construction. Those power stations that are smaller than 1,000 MW, and those that are decommissioned or only at a planning/proposal stage may be found in regional lists, listed at the end of the page.
Pumped-storage hydroelectric power stations
The table below lists currently operational power stations. Some of these may have additional units under construction, but only current net capacity is listed.
This table lists stations under construction or operational stations with under-construction and current net capacity under 1,000 MW.
