www.leonardo-energy.org The EU has established new priorities for the electricity sector, most notably security of supply is paramount and a renewable energy target of 20% by 2020. Investment in the European transmission grid has to reflect the new political decisions and this will require significant investment in the network. Achievement of priorities will require a change in mindset in transmission planning as reliance on traditional solutions based around overhead lines will not suffice...
Basslink is a HVDC link crossing Bass Strait, connecting the Loy Yang Power Station, Victoria on the Australian mainland to the George Town substation in northern Tasmania. In August 2007, Basslink was purchased by CSIM, the trustee-manager of CitySpring. Basslink is the world's longest sub-sea power cable. Commissioned in April 2006, it is a 360 kilometre link between Tasmania and mainland Australia. The Basslink Interconnector has been operational since 29th April 2006. From that time it...
This video highlights distribution cable system assembly, known as cold shrink technology, based on work in the EPRI Distribution Research Program. EPRI, in collaboration with leading electric utilities, produces instructional and training multimedia DVD's on proper installation methods and techniques using cold shrink technology.
This video highlights distribution cable forensic analysis based on work in the EPRI Distribution Research Program. EPRI, in collaboration with Consolidated Edison Company, produced instructional multimedia DVD's about forensic analysis to determine the root cause of underground cable system failures.
The last overhead high voltage line to cross state lines took 18 years to complete. That's 2 years to build, 16 for the various permits and lawsuits. But with a need for more high voltage lines to keep up with demand, could the answer lie at the bottom of lakes and rivers? Clean Skies Lee Patrick Sullivan explains.

L'ELETTRODOTTO "SA.PE.I"/ LA SCHEDA - Il SA.PE.I. - acronimo di SArdegna-PEnisola-Italiana, spiega Terna, "e' il piu' importante e tecnologicamente avanzato elettrodotto ad alta tensione mai realizzato in Italia. L'opera e' stata finanziata per oltre il 50% da Terna con mezzi propri e per la parte restante con uno stanziamento di 373 milioni di euro da parte della Banca Europea per gli Investimenti (BEI) per il suo alto valore strategico". Il SA.PE.I. collega Fiumesanto, in Sardegna, e...
ABB supplies the power equipment that will connect the grids of Ireland and Wales. This is the first HVDC Light project to use ±200 kV cables and is one of the largest orders in ABB:s HVDC history. The cable route length consists of 75 km land cable and 186 km sea cable. The East West Interconnector link is scheduled to be operational in 2012.
ABB connects the 400-MW Borkum-2 park using its innovative and environmentally friendly HVDC Light (high-voltage direct current) transmission technology, which gives utilities complete control over the power supply and increases grid stability. Located more than 100 kilometers off the German coast in the North Sea, it is be the most remote wind farm in the world.
