Wind of Change: European grid prepares for massive integration of renewables

BEST PATHS – a European research project with 39 partners and a budget of 63 million Euros will deliver a substantial change to Europe’s power grid’s capacity and flexibility. This project, funded by the European Commission, will focus on the development of high-capacity transmission networks needed to meet Europe’s long-term energy goals and incorporation of renewable energy sources.
The BAM as one of the partners will investigate physical material properties of different HTLS conductors. HTLS stands for High Temperature Low Sag. Such conductors allow an increase in the current without missing the safety distance to the ground.
