"China's HVDC technology is available to the world," says China State Grid Director, Jim Cai.


China has become the world’s largest HVDC investor and plans to invest $250 billion on aggressively deploying HVDC lines to bridge the development gap between the nation’s power-producing western provinces and the population-dense east. From calculated domestic investment, Beijing now has the capability to export HVDC technology abroad through the Belt and Road.
State Grid finished the 12,000-mile-long Xiangjiaba-Shanghai transmission project, which spans a distance nearly equal to that between Boston and Atlanta, in 2010 after just two years.

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.
