Georgia now exporting green energy to Turkey

Turkey has a growing demand for power. Georgia has an abundance of renewable power sources, such as hydro and wind. Georgia’s grid network was not designed as a network for an independent state, as it was part of the power supply in the Caucasus that was linked to the Soviet republics. The challenge is to break down existing barriers across the boarders…

Turning the Tide

High-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission is rapidly expanding around the world, with quickly evolving concepts and configurations. More than 200 HVDC systems are operating globally and many new HVDC projects, both overhead line and cable, are being planned. HVDC grids that overlay the alternating current (AC) network are being seriously considered for future development.

HVDC Transmission

High voltage direct current (HVDC) power systems use D.C. for transmission of bulk power over long distances. For long-distance power transmission, HVDC lines are less expensive, and losses are less as compared to AC transmission. It interconnects the networks that have different frequencies and characteristics.

HVDC Link to Connect Electricity Grids of UK and Belgium

Nemo Link interconnector is a joint venture between the Transmission System Operators Elia (Belgium) and National Grid (UK) to exchange electricity up to 1,000 MW between the two countries, using high voltage direct current (HVDC) technology. Nemo Link connects the Belgian and the British power grid with a combination of subsea and underground cables. This new 140-km long HVDC interconnection increases security of supply for both countries, allowing the import and export of electricity, as well as supporting the integration of renewable energy in the grid. The European Commission designated it a Project of Common Interest as it contributes to an integrated European energy market.
