Expediting a Renewable Energy Future With High-Voltage DC Transmission

By [email protected] It’s widely agreed that one of the best ways to reduce carbon emissions around the globe is to bring on-line more renewable energy. However, the current century-old grid system presents challenges to this goal, with inefficient infrastructure and independent grid systems.

Moreover, new transmission and distribution projects potentially face significant delays related to right-of-way issues, such as permits for crossing waterways or resistance from residential neighborhoods, as well as limited financing options related to high upfront investments.

Collectively, these issues are slowing the rollout of renewable energy projects.

That’s where high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission systems come in. HVDC can be more
