PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna and the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOŚiGW) will work together on the “Młoty” Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage (PHES) project. The implementation of the “Młoty” PHES project will support the national energy transition and ensure the future stability of the operation of the National Power System.
The “Młoty” Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage, with a planned total capacity of over 750 MW, is the most advanced PHES construction project in Poland. The project is based on mining works that started in the 1970s and were suspended in the early 1980s.

As part of the investment, two water reservoirs are to be created which, due to their specific functioning, would additionally perform flood control functions in the Bystrzyca Kłodzka municipality.
The power station will be connected to the NPS with a 400 kV high voltage power line, increasing the energy security of the region.
The “Młoty” PHES project is part of the task of Order No. 351 of the Prime Minister of December 28, 2021, on the appointment of an Expert Team for the Construction of Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage facilities. This team aims to develop solutions to foster the development of new energy storage facilities, through regulatory and technical support.
