Successful kick-off of EU-funded project to define technical frameworks and standards for electricity transmission and accelerate the integration of renewable energy
The European Union wants to deploy 300 GW of offshore wind by 2050 to meet its climate targets and to reduce its dependence on fossil fuel. The most efficient way of transporting electricity from offshore wind is via multi-terminal high voltage direct current (HVDC) grids. Under the EU’s “Horizon Europe” funding scheme the InterOPERA project will define future interoperability standards for electricity grids. The project was officially launched this week with a kick-off meeting in Lyon, France.
