The Klammsee power plant supplies the storage power plants in Kaprun with their own requirements. The power plant uses the outflows from the remaining catchment area of the Kaprun valley, which is not covered by the main stage power plant. The power plant has a capacity of 0.5 MW.

Lake Klammsee has developed into a popular local recreational area in Kaprun and welcomes locals as well as visitors from all over the world. A playground, a Kneipp facility and a kiosk are available to visitors.
