The island of El Hierro, a part of the Canary Islands chain off the coast of Spain, is implementing a hybrid hydroelectric and wind plant to meet its energy needs using renewable sources. This facility integrates a pumped-storage plant with 11.32 MW of generating capacity and 6 MW of pumping capacity with an 11.5 MW wind farm. Working together, the two technologies will help create reliable, efficient and stable power supply for the 10,960 persons residing on the island.
