Assessing the Potential and Optimal Scheduling of an Integrated Pumped Hydro Reverse Osmosis System for Egypt Islam M. ElNaghy, Amr Y. Elbanhawy, Alexander H. Slocum



Energy storage and water desalination are two fields where Egypt is intensively investing in to plan for the current and future energy and water demands as well as commit to its sustainability targets, Integrated Pumped hydro Reverse osmosis System “IPHROS” is a system that combines both water production and energy storage, its operating schedule in studied in multiple scenarios that represent current status and future trends. The system is modeled as an unconstrained price taker, this revenue scheme starts yielding a positive re-turn on investments when higher renewables penetration are added to the grid but also in-creases the overall grid emissions, the IPHROS was also modeled in an off-grid scenario to provide energy and fresh water to a hydrogen electrolyzer, which proved to be the most profitable scenario for IPRHOS.
