Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
About those countries, notably Scandiwegians, which have considerable hydro capacity :

Can they retro-fit to provide pumped storage?

i.e. when wind would otherwise be spilled, dammed hydro is not running. Can it be "run backwards" to soak up the wind? Is this not a cheaper option than new pumped storage facilities?
