How battery systems can integrate renewable energy in smart grids
16 July 2018 - By 2030, 32% of the energy consumed in the EU must be generated from renewable sources, such as water, wind and sun. To achieve this, it doesn’t suffice to increase the number of wind turbines and solar cells. Extended and adapted transport and distribution grids are also...
New superconducting cable sets records for power transmission
La Spezia (Italy), 5th July 2018 – Today major cable and wire manufacturers, including Nexans and Columbus Superconductors, together with transmission system operators such as Terna and Réseau de Transport d'Électricité (RTE), disclosed the results of ground-breaking research on a...
Superconducting Cables: Entering the Power Grid World
25 June 2018 - We could easily integrate superconducting power cables into our grids within the next five years, says Christian-Eric Bruzek. The French engineer works for the cable manufacturer Nexans and is currently coordinating a team of ten European partners within the EU project Best Paths. In...
HVDC grids to facilitate cross-border energy exchange
15 June 2018 - In the future, point-to-point offshore connections are expected to evolve into multi-terminal HVDC-systems to increase power exchange between countries and strengthen the energy market of renewables   In addition to solar, wind power is growing as a source of alternative energy,...
