Hitachi Energy HVDC High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is a key enabler for a carbon-neutral energy system. It is highly efficient for transmitting large amounts of electricity over long distances, integration of renewables and interconnecting grids, opening up for new sustainable transmission solutions. HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) and HVDC Light® are highly efficient alternatives for transmitting bulk power and for special purpose applications. The classic HVDC technology is used to transmit electric power over long distances by overhead transmission lines or submarine cables. It is also used to interconnect separate power systems, where traditional alternating current (AC) connections cannot be used. HVDC Light® is an underground and submarine cable power transmission technology developed by Hitachi Energy that offers additional benefits compared to HVDC Classic. The ongoing transition toward a more sustainable energy system requires cutting edge technology deployed with speed and scale in our power grids. Hitachi Energy plays a pivotal role in making this happen supporting customers with solutions like High Voltage DC (HVDC) transmission systems in order to connect renewable power to the power grid, interconnect different energy markets and dispatch energy all the way to the increasingly electrified loads.
