The grid is facing new challenges with rapid increase in demand and higher shares of renewable generation in order to reach Net Zero by 2050.
HVDC transmission technology allows for connection of remote renewable power like hydro, solar or wind generation – to load centers where it is needed, hundreds or even thousands of kilometers away. Additionally, HVDC technology allows for interconnections between grids, enabling power exchange of renewable generation between different regions.
Raising operational challenges and identify optimal set of technologies, business models and regulatory frameworks is helping to accommodate higher shares of sustainable energy sources, transport, industries and buildings while simultaneously increasing reliability and resiliency of power supply.
The HVDC market is growing rapidly and has become an important part of many transmission networks. However, this also stresses the importance of sustainable building, operating and maintain the converter stations as demand of critical materials with high CO2 footprint increases.
Join us to learn more about the role of HVDC in the future power system and how to build, operate and maintain HVDC converter stations with sustainability in mind.
