Sahara Wind's HVDC scale-up of Africa-Europe’s interconnection presented at the 'Horizon 2050 HVDC technologies' Workshop in Brussels, February 4th 2020
At the invitation of the European Commission Directorate-General for Energy, Sahara Wind participated in the ‘Horizon 2050 power system and the role of HVDC technologies in a highly decentralised RES generation’ Workshop in Brussels. Based on actual developments grid operators and HVDC industry experts assessed the potentialities of applying further DC technologies in the existing electricity grid. As part of these prospects, the Sahara Wind project HVDC scale-up of Africa-Europe’s interconnection was presented during the ‘HVDC developments – perspective / implementation projects EEPR CEF PCI’ morning session. The latter was followed by a lively discussion on the future architecture of the EU’s highly decentralized Renewable Energy System generation, integrating DC transmission technologies and HVDC networks on a regional scale.
