Large-Scale Hydropower Plant at Lake Tiberias in the Context of Transboundary Water Transfer

Author: UK
Partner Organisation: EWRE

Key Findings

  • A hydropower plant could make use of the elevation gradient of ca. 200 m between a seawater desalination plant at the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Tiberias.
  • Depending on the water production scenario and flow system, the hydropower plant could recover 11 to 16% of the electricity used by the desalination plant.
  • Intermittent operation of the hydropower plant in combination with the use of solar energy could increase the share of renewable electricity generation.
