CIGRE feasibility study of a global electricity network
With global climate protection and development of renewable energy, a global electricity network could take advantage of diversity from time zones, seasons, load patterns and variable generation, supported by developments in UHV transmission.
Since 2016, CIGRE WG C1.35 studies the feasibility of a global electricity network. The tutorial presents advanced results based on modelling for a 2050 horizon, plus challenges, benefits, uneven distribution of energy resources such as wind and solar.
In the discussion at the end, participants may comment on interfaces between continents.
