Vik Iso-Ahola was spotlighted in Civil + Structural Engineer to talk about pumped storage projects and how they can help with the energy transition

The good news? We are seeing pumped storage projects in development. However, there are several barriers to progress in the industry that we will need to overcome.

Vik Iso-Ahola was featured in Civil + Structural Engineer to look at what pumped storage is, how it can help us, the barriers to adoption, and some examples of projects across the US, particularly in the west where pumped storage projects are desperately needed to meet rising energy demands.
