  • Siemens Announces Technology Blueprint to Solve Australia’s Water and Energy issues by 2030
    Apr 26, 2010 - Siemens  Ltd.

    Siemens recommends Australia invests AUD$60billion over the next 10 years in renewable and low CO2 generation technologies, and AUD$23billion over the next 10 years in water infrastructure technologies to make water available for the increasing population

  • Underwater Cable an Alternative to Electrical Towers
    Mar 16, 2010 - Matthew L. Wald - New York Times

    Generating 20 percent of America’s electricity with wind, as recent studies proposed, would require building up to 22,000 miles of new high-voltage transmission lines. But the huge towers and unsightly tree-cutting that these projects require have provoked intense public opposition.

  • For higher capacity and greater grid stability: Siemens to expand HVDC link in New Zealand
    Nov 11, 2009 - Energy Central

    Siemens Energy has received an order from Wellington-based Transpower New Zealand Limited, the national grid operator, to modernize and increase the capacity of the existing high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) link between the country’s North and South Island.

  • Clean Energy Increase Depends on Transmission Upgrade
    Jun 8, 2009 - AAP Finance News Wire

    A multi-billion-dollar upgrade of transmission networks will be required for South Australia to deliver on new renewable energy targets, the Clean Energy Council says.

  • American Innovation, Chinese Transmission, Australian Clean Energy: The Ideal Match
    May 9, 2009 - Stewart Taggart - Desertec

    It's a combination that could dramatically reshape Asia for the better.

  • DESERTEC-Australia Announces HVDC Supergrid Petition Drive
    May 1, 2009 - Stewart Taggart

    In the UK and Europe, civil society groups are organising to get transmission grid upgrades onto domestic political agendas.

  • Desertec-Australia/GENI Submission - Green Paper (pdf)
    Sep 2008 - Stewart Taggart

    Desertec-Australia and the Global Energy Network Institute encourage the government to resist pleas by fossil fuel industries for exemptions to the strictures of carbon pricing and carbon trading. Instead of making Australia's economy stronger, exemptions will make Australia's economy weaker. Exemptions merely delay important reforms and investments industry must make to adapt to a competitive new global economy based on low emission energy sources.

    In its "Roadmap to a Solar/Geothermal Australian Economy By 2050," Desertec-Australia lays out a plan by which Australia can develop its greatest comparative advantages in solar and geothermal and exploit those to satisfy its own internal energy needs and those of Asia. The vision represents an amalgam of Desertec-Australia's and GENI's views.

  • Wind Farms Caught in a Catch-22 Situation
    Mar 1, 2007 - Energy Central

    The Press: Christchurch, New Zealand: Wind-farm proposals will not be able to provide much-needed power to the rest of New Zealand unless Central Otago has new transmission lines, Transpower says.

  • ABB to deliver HVDC Light technology to Australia
    Dec 22, 1998 - ABB

    Project allows energy trading in Australia’s deregulated power market
    Zurich, Switzerland - ABB, the international engineering and technology group, has won an order to build a power link in Australia using High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology. The 65-kilometer (41-mile) so called HVDC Light link will connect the power grids of Queensland and New South Wales and allow power to be traded for the first time between the two states. The order was placed by HQI Australia Limited Partnership and EMMLINK Pty Ltd, which have formed a joint venture to build, own and operate the link. ABB did not disclose the value of the order. Construction of the link is to begin in June 1999 with operation scheduled to start in January 2000.
