According to a new report, US electric grid operators are falling behind their worldwide counterparts when it comes to deploying higher-voltage direct present (HVDC) lines. This is regarding due to the fact there is a pressing will need to expand the nation’s transmission capacity in order to effectively transport low-expense renewable energy more than lengthy distances, meet the increasing demand for electrical energy, and guarantee a trustworthy provide. The report, titled “The Operational and Marketplace Advantages of HVDC to Technique Operators”, delivers nine suggestions to overcome the challenges that HVDC technologies faces in the US. Johannes Pfeifenberger, the principal with The Brattle Group and co-author of the report, emphasizes the huge chance that HVDC technologies present for upgrading and expanding the aging transmission program in the US. Having said that, quick action is expected to address the barriers that are presently hindering the widespread adoption of this technologies domestically.
