Further advances in high-voltage
technology are making renewables more available to nations around the world.
are currently dozens of HVDC (high-voltage direct current) interconnections,
and many more planned. These grids allow utilities and nations to link their
grids over long distances so they can tap abundant renewable energy resources.
GENI's vision of linking renewable energy resources
around the world was a dream 30 years ago. Today this dream is both feasible
and economically desirable.
Multi-terminal systems have extra benefits:
can be feed in and out along the path
- The system can enable both 50Hz and 60Hz networks
- Renewable project developers can sell to distant markets
Both China and India are developing multi-terminal HVDC
projects today to expand their renewable portfolios:
- Nanao Island into the mainland Guangdong (wind)
- North-East Agra (hydro)
The technology of HVDC transmission enables
nations to work together in an interdependent manner that's better for both.
The network builds stronger neighbors.
