Roadmap of the first phase of the European Supergrid



transmission assets will be needed to bring this power into load centres, connect power markets and balance load and generation in an efficient way. The European Supergrid is the vision of Friends of the Supergrid (FOSG); a pan-European transmission network facilitating the integration of large-scale renewable energy and the balancing and transportation of electricity, with the aim of improving the European market. This paper summarises the FOSG roadmap of the Supergrid technologies covering aspects such as HVDC converters and systems, high voltage cables, control and communication systems as well as the drivers, applications, and relevant ongoing activities in international working groups. It is based on the FOSG annual report on the Supergrid roadmap and recent developments. These developments can be seen as indicators of progress towards a Supergrid. In conclusion the technology is not foreseen to be a stumbling block, whereas greater challenges may lay ahead on legal frameworks, regulatory aspects and appropriate market rules.
