Existing Hydropower capacity in the scenario area was roughly 201 GW at the end of 90th. Thereof 67.8 GW were river run-off and 133.2 GW storage hydropower (There is a further capacity of rughly 28.1 GW of pure pump storage.). The distinction between them is not absolutely clear in any case. Storage hydropower roughly produces 405 TWh per year in the scenario area and has a storage volume of roughly 241 TWh.
