The economy ministry expects the launch of the new large hydropower plant on the river Ipel sometime after 2025.
The state has not given up its plan to build a large pumped-storage plant on the river Ipel. „The project of the pumped-storage plant Ipel with the weekly cycle has been announced several times. The possible electricity source has a significant potential for the provision of support services,“ the economy ministry stated in its regular annual report. The project implementation will, however, according to the economy ministry, depend on the development on the international electricity market and the decision of the strategic investor who is expected to participate.
