But the 96 GW rated power of the storage hydropower plants is too small to compensate the lack of power. The difference is still 120 GW.
There are many possibilities to get the necessary backup power. One was to enlarge the rated power at the reservoirs as it sometimes is done to provide peak load capacity. An other way is to use thermal units which also could be fired by Biomass.
