Best Paths: Upgrading Europe’s grid to new high-capacity technologies
Best Paths seeks to evaluate the technical feasibility, costs, impacts and benefits of new high-capacity grid technologies through five large-scale demonstrations. The focus of the project is to deliver solutions to enable transition from High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) lines to HVDC grids, to upgrade and repower existing Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) parts of the network, and to integrate superconducting high power DC links within an AC meshed network.
The experts of the Best Paths project will meet in Berlin, Germany on the 26th of October 2016 to share their experiences, present the project’s mid-term status and receive feedback from stakeholders. Industry professionals, policy stakeholders, renewables sector actors, and citizens can engage in dialogue on innovative network technologies that will allow to anticipate the future transmission network development needs in line with the long term decarbonisation goals set at European level.
