- Innovative integration of new technologies can benefit our society greatly. This paper presents a system which exploits the synergy of wind and hydro (windro) generation in an appropriate environment. The system presented is a pumped storage system integrated into a skyscraper to store wind power and deliver it at times of peak demand. A discussion is provided of why this is an appropriate environment. The benefits of the system include; increased value of the wind power, city centralised power generation and the smoothing of the building's electricity demand profile. An electrical model of the system is developed in PSCAD and results presented.
