On Monday (5 February), Polish energy company PGE opened a local information point for the planned “Młoty” pumped-storage power plant in Bystrzyca Kłodzka, southwestern Poland.
It is a publicly accessible place for the local community, where information about pumped-storage power plants and the construction of the “Młoty” power plant is available. Educational and informational activities related to the project are also planned.
The planned pumped-storage power plant is expected to have a capacity of 1,050 megawatts (MW) and consist of two water reservoirs, which would also serve the additional functions of flood control and maintaining water retention in the region. The completion of the project is set for 2030.
“The Green Energy Storage ‘Młoty’ is a strategic project from the point of view of energy transformation and energy security in southwestern Poland. Therefore, it is important to continue this green investment, and the opening of the Local Information Point meets the expectations of residents and is one of the key activities in the field of communication regarding this investment,” said Wojciech Dąbrowski, President of the PGE Management Board. “We are a responsible investor who cooperates with the local community. That is why, in July last year, we announced that we would open a Local Information Point for the Green Energy Storage “Młoty”, where you will be able to obtain reliable information about the project, ask questions, and take part in educational activities.”
