Articles on Technological Breakthroughs in Transmission Projects

  • ABB Hails ‘Supergrids’ Breakthrough,
    Nov 7, 2012 -

    This historical breakthrough will make it possible to build the grid of the future. Overlay DC grids will be able to interconnect countries and continents, balance loads and reinforce the existing AC transmission networks.

  • Warm Currents: Graphite Powder Stirs Up Hints of Room-Temperature Superconductivity
    September 17, 2012 - Sophie Bushwick -

    A recent discovery in a study of room-temperature superconductivity, if borne out, could make the dream of super-efficient long-distance electricity transmission and levitating trains a little closer to reality.

  • Unique Properties of Graphene Lead to a New Paradigm for Low-Power Telecommunications
    Jul 15, 2012 -

    New research by Columbia Engineering demonstrates remarkable optical nonlinear behavior of graphene that may lead to broad applications in optical interconnects and low-power photonic integrated circuits. With the placement of a sheet of graphene just one-carbon-atom-thick, the researchers transformed the originally passive device into an active one that generated microwave photonic signals and performed parametric wavelength conversion at telecommunication wavelengths.

  • Finding solutions to Achilles’ heel of renewable energy: intermittency
    Mar 7, 2012 - Diana Lutz -

    Engineers imagine an energy future where giant transmission grids are backed up by massive energy storage units

  • ABB commissions power link between Sweden and Finland
    Feb 8, 2012 -

    Zurich, Switzerland, Jan.11, 2012 – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has successfully commissioned a power link between Finland and Sweden. The HVDC (high-voltage direct current) Fenno-Skan 2 link is a cable-based power transmission system that enables the exchange of an additional 800 MW of power between the two countries, mitigating transmission bottle-necks in the region. The Fenno-Skan link is owned and operated by Fingrid and Svenska Kraftnät

  • Solarbuzz expects major shift in solar PV markets as pipeline outside Europe reaches 25GW
    Sept. 20, 2011 - Mark Osborne -

    The photovoltaics market is expected to shift away from Europe and be dominated by installations in new emerging markets such as the US, China, India and other Asia-Pacific countries, according to three new 'Regional Downstream PV Market' reports issued by market research firm, Solarbuzz. Due to revised feed-in tariff systems in key European markets, Europe is now projected to represent 65% of world PV demand in 2011, down from 82% in 2010.

  • HVDC Light ABB 3D
    Sept. 16, 2011 -

    Connecting Electricity Markets -- The East West Interconnector: Connecting Ireland and Wales

  • Viewpoints: How electrical 'microgrids' might revolutionize power transmission
    Jul 2, 2011 - Peter Asmus -

    The Sacramento Municipal Utility District has long been seen as a clean technology pioneer. After all, this is a utility that shuttered a nuclear reactor after a public vote in 1989 and has since blazed trails on wind, solar and energy efficiency.

  • A Highway For the 21st Century: Tres Amigas Plans to Transform the Grid
    Feb 1, 2011 - Paul Korzeniowski -

    The company signed a 99-year lease with the state of New Mexico and plans to develop 22 square miles of land, or about 14,400 acres, into an energy superstation.

  • 32 Companies Charging the Super Grid Now
    Nov 17, 2010 - Ciara Byrne - Venture Beat

    The super grid, the theme of VentureBeat’s next GreenBeat conference, involves a bewildering array of technologies and companies from industry behemoths like GE and Cisco to disruptive young startups.

  • Secrets behind high temperature superconductors revealed
    Feb 22, 2009 - Science Mode

    Scientists from Queen Mary, University of London and the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) have found evidence that magnetism is involved in the mechanism behind high temperature superconductivity.

  • New Superconductors Present New Mysteries, Possibilities
    Jun 5, 2008 - ScienceDaily

    Johns Hopkins University researchers and colleagues in China have unlocked some of the secrets of newly discovered iron-based high-temperature superconductors, research that could result in the design of better superconductors for use in industry, medicine, transportation and energy generation.

  • Could Electricity Grid Become A Type Of Internet?
    Oct 25, 2007 - Science Daily

    In the future everyone who is connected to the electricity grid will be able to upload and download packages of electricity to and from this network. At least, that is one of the transformations the electricity grid could undergo.
