Efficient HVDC power lines eliminate the drawbacks of moving power across these long distances.
For large grids, HVDC lines provide an undeniable boon: electricity surpluses in one area can provide power to a nation’s farthest flung regions, reducing blackouts. HVDC can also balance out the intermittency of renewable energy. Wind and solar power are typically generated far from urban and industrial centers—by offshore wind farms anchored in turbulent seas or solar panels arrayed in isolated deserts.
Mexico's national electricity infrastructure will add eight new projects at $3.5 billion.
One of the works is the subsea HVDC line that will connect the isolated system of Baja California Sur to the national interconnected system (SIN). It is estimated that the project will start operating in 2021.
There is no better venue to nurture your important contacts and connections. The intimacy of the conference allows for personal re-connection that can naturally flow into your business.
