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.
This webinar is presented by Gérald SANCHIS, Secretary of CIGRE Working Group C1.35, "Global Electricity Network Feasibility Study", that published a Working Group interim report in Electra issue 293 (available from www.e-cigre.org), in August 2017.
The registration to the webinar is free for all CIGRE members and non members. Technical Brochures and Working Group reports can be downloaded for free by CIGRE members. If you are not a CIGRE member, join us on https://www.cigre.org/GB/join/how-to-join
