Articles on Transmission Projects Globally

  • North-South power link to be studied
    Jul. 25, 2011 -

    MINISTER FOR Energy Pat Rabbitte has appointed three international experts to a commission to examine whether there is a case for building all or part of the North-South high voltage electricity interconnector underground, and the cost involved in such a project.

  • Intermittency and the HVDC Supergrid
    May 22, 2011 - Howard Silverman -

    Smart grid or supergrid? Although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, distinguishing them can be useful.

  • Virtual-Power-Plant Market Capacity Expected To Double By 2015
    Apr 16, 2011 -

    A new report from Pike Research suggests that the market for virtual power plants (VPPs) will continue its steady growth over the next several years, increasing from $5.2 billion in worldwide revenue in 2010 to nearly $7.4 billion by 2015, under a base-case scenario. In a more aggressive forecast scenario, global VPP revenues could reach as high as $12.7 billion during the same period.

  • View HVDC converter stations from space
    Mar 2, 2011 -

    If you have the Google Earth software on your computer we invite you to click on the Google Earth links! We have limited to only those converter stations where Google Earth provides a good resolution.

  • How home solar arrays can help to stabilize the grid, part 1 of 2
    May 25, 2010 - George Musser -

    Solar arrays can do more than feed energy into the power grid.

  • Interconnected energy systems key to energy efficiency
    May 24, 2010 - Karel Smrcka -

    The closing message of the World Energy Dialogue (WED), staged at Hanover 2010, could not have been clearer: a high degree of interconnection is key to achieving sustainable energy supplies for today’s rapidly growing urban centres. Only by means of integrated power grids across regional and national borders can long-term efficiency be attained and future challenges be adequately tackled.

    Balancing the Grid with Renewables Storage

  • Behind the Light Switch: What Will a Smart Grid Look Like?
    May 18, 2010 - David Biello -

    A nut-and-bolts, transformer-and-cable view of the power grid as it gets smarter

  • Energy question of the week: How is electrical power carried across the sea?
    Apr 13, 2010 - Jan Oliver Loefken

    Two trends are emerging for future renewable electricity. In the first, local solar, wind or biomass plants will produce more energy for small communities or single homes.

  • Exploration of Resource and Transmission Expansion
    Feb 25, 2010 - Andrew Mills, Amol Phadke, and Ryan Wiser

    Exploration of Resource and Transmission Expansion Decisions in the Western Renewable Energy Zone Initiative

  • New Directions in Transmission
    Jan 27, 2010 - Salvatore Salamone -

    In countries around the world, there is a growing need to move what is expected to be significant amounts of wind, solar and hydro-generated electricity from sparsely populated remote regions to the cities where demand is great

  • Science: Stand by for the Supergrid
    Oct 3, 2009 - Anjana Ahuja - Times Online

    If you are a glass-half-empty sort of person you might find yourself tempted by the Cheltenham Literature Festival event on October 17 entitled “2050: Did Science Save Us?”. This discussion will take participants more than 40 years into the future, when humankind has defied all sorts of shenanigans to stay in existence. What technologies, the panel will ask, are most likely to help us to survive to that point and beyond?

  • 30 minutes radio program on the benefits of supergrid
    Sept 23, 2009 - BBC iPlayer

  • What is the supergrid? - Supplying renewable electricity worldwide
    Jul 16, 2009 - Environmental

    This month the G8 Summit agreed the first steps towards a significant global strategy on climate change by agreeing that global warming temperatures should not exceed 2C of 1900 levels and that member nations will work towards an 80% reduction of green house gas emissions by 2050. The USA has taken a major step-change in its attitude towards the climate and President Obama who chaired the discussion stressed that the issue of climate change could no longer be ignored and that we should look towards December and Copenhagen.

  • ABB Ltd. Presents Ultrahigh-voltage Transformer for the World’s Longest Power Transmission Link
    Dec 29, 2008 - Justice Sirikah - ABB

    Transnational power and automation technology group, ABB, last week confirmed that it has effectively tested a most recent type of transformer, compatible with power superhighways – power links that distribute extensive quantities of electricity over extremely long distances.

  • ABB cables connect the world’s power systems
    Sep 4, 2008 - ABB

    The orders are from an impressive cross-section of utilities, grid operators and large industrial energy consumers. They want stable grids, an efficient and reliable way to trade energy, and the ability to deliver electric power in an environmentally friendly and cost effective way, from the mainland to consumers at sea, or from the sea to consumers on the mainland.

  • Abramovich's Passage To America
    Mar 28, 2008 -

    LONDON - Could Roman Abramovich, the billionaire owner of Chelsea soccer club be setting his sights on improving U.S.-Russian relations?

  • Bold Energy Plan to Be Debated in Parliament
    Feb 25, 2008 -

    Every year, each square kilometre of hot desert receives solar energy equivalent to 1.5 million barrels of oil. Multiplying by the area of deserts worldwide, this is several hundred times the entire energy consumption of the world. It is possible to tap in to this cornucopia using the simple proven technique of "concentrating solar power" (CSP): using mirrors to concentrate sunlight to create heat and then using the heat to raise steam to drive turbines and generate electricity, just like a conventional power station. Solar heat can be stored so that electricity generation can continue at night.

  • Global highways for electric current
    Feb 7, 2008 - International Energy Solutions - Engineer Live

    Global demand for electric power will continue to grow significantly in the years ahead, a trend that will seriously impact the expansion of power plant capacities and adaptation of power supply systems. All in all, enormous investments will be necessary in the near future in power generation, and thus also in power transmission. High-voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) will play a major role in this scenario, especially for long-distance links but also for submarine cable links or for interconnecting disparate power supply systems where necessary.

  • Political Aspects of Grid Interconnection
    Nov 8, 2007 - Multi Dimensional Issues in International Electric Power Grid Interconnections - UN Publications -

    This Chapter of this Report reviews some of the key potential political benefits and liabilities of international grid interconnections, describes the types of political cooperation required between and within countries to make grid interconnections work effectively, and notes national attributes that favor successful interconnections.
