Superconducting cables for very high power transmission
5 July 2018, Brussels, Belgium
The last special workshop of the EU funded Best Paths project will show the results of the Demonstration 5, which is developing a new superconducting direct current cable enabling power transmission of several gigawatts.
The workshop, organised by Nexans, IASS Potsdam and ASG Superconductors, will also discuss the future European grid and the opportunities for integrating superconducting transmission links.
The day will include a visit of Columbus Superconductors, which is a world leader in the manufacturing of superconducting wires.
EERA 10th Anniversary Conference
26-27 June 2018, Brussels, Belgium
European Energy Research Alliance will be celebrating its 10th anniversary with a high-level policy event addressing key factors for the future of the energy community in Europe and highlighting EERA´s contribution as a key pillar of the EU Strategic Energy Technology (SET)-Plan.
How should the energy research community, governments, industry and other stakeholders coordinate to contribute to the SET-Plan Implementation Plans? How can the Implementation Plans be integrated in the transition from H2020 to the next EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation? What are the megatrends in energy transition and how can different technologies and disciplines come together to contribute shaping a sustainable energy future?
Join EERA members and representatives from EU institutions, Member States, research, industry and other stakeholders to discuss these topics.
