Global electricity network feasibility study



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. From 2016 until early 2019, CIGRE WG C1.35 studied the feasibility of a global electricity network. The webinar presents  the WG results based on modeling for a 2050 horizon, plus challenges, benefits, and uneven distribution of energy resources such as wind or solar. In the discussion at the end, participants may comment on interfaces between continents.
