No time to lose: Equipping the future electricity grid
What will the future grid look like? What are the most promising technologies for increasing transmission capacity and flexibility? How can we integrate more energy from remote wind and solar farms? At the conference ‘Renewing the EU electricity grid: the Best Paths towards energy transition’ experts presented their research on technical solutions for efficient and powerful electricity transmission – from underground cables for offshore wind farms and superconducting links, to new converters and modernised overhead lines.
