The main types of hydropower plants based on the ability to store water are 1) run-of-river, 2) storage and 3) pumped storage plants. Run-of-river plants are plants without reservoirs, which run on the natural discharge of the river. Storage plants require the construction of a dam and a reservoir to store water. In many regions of Europe, run-of-river plants are the most common type of hydropower plants, but storage and pumped storage plants account for a higher share of the installed capacity.
