31 Oct 2018 (Shanghai). Because China is not only conducting the biggest HVDC roll-out in the world, but also setting up a manufacturing base that could challenge the biggest global players in the market, HVDC Belt and Road 2019 China Conference, will run on May 22-23, 2019 in Shanghai, China. This conference is the third annual conference organized by the Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics, a division of Arc Media Global.

Recent technological advances in high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission have led many to see it as a crucial element in an efficient, smart power system of the future; today,a long distance 800 kV HVDC line loses just 3.5 per cent per 1000km, and is able to transmit many gigawatts of power.

Past sponsors and attendees of the Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics global HVDC conference series span the biggest names in HVDC, smart grids and long-distance transmission, circuit breaker and technologies, including Siemens, ABB, Sterlite, Acciona Energy, Sempra Energy, Hifaely Hipotronics, CESI Italy, IENova, and China State Grid / CEPRI.

China is by far the biggest HVDC investor, helped by its simple planning and open policy structure. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) will push for approval of a massive $250 billion upgrade plan that will link regional grids via 20 HVDC power corridors by 2020. Led by China's dominant transmission companies, the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) and China Southern Power Grid Company will connect China's energy resources to its demand centers along its coastal rim--with a capacity expected to grow to 1500 GW by 2020 from 1060 GW at the end of 2013. 

Major topics that will be discussed at the conference include:

- HVDC offshore wind developments

- Europe-Asia interconnection projects

- New technologies, including HVDC testing, UHVDC, transmission network efficiency

- Technical issues on Belt and Road HVDC roll-out

- Models for execution of HVDC equipment sales

 

This conference is designed for anyone within the transmission industry interested in HVDC Belt and Road projects with the following job titles:

- Transmission and Distribution system operators

- Electricity Sector Utilities

- Transmission cable suppliers

- Power transmission component suppliers

- CEOs

- COOs

- CIOs

- Business development managers

- Marketing managers

- Technologists

- Suppliers

- Investors

- Banks

- Government agencies

- Contractors

 

"Cashing in on the China Belt and Road Initiative where the business volume is thick brings a solid strategy to diversify global sales for transmission companies," says Mr Rex Sayson, Director, Programs, Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics. 

"At the first week of the launch of the program, we are pleased to have received a very strong pipeline of interested technology providers interested in China's very lively HVDC market," Mr Sayson adds.

Unlike its counterparts overseas, China's objective is to build connections between regions, in line with national macro energy planning. In the US of Europe, there's no similar body linking local national or state grids. 

For Chinese provinces with surplus power, returns are higher if the electricity can be exported to areas of tighter supply. Connecting north-to-south lines and west-to-east at an HVDC project cost of $1.05 million per mile would mean $40 billion worth of business by 2020.

To be able to enjoy this big business, technology providers will work with local companies on the basis of technology transfer. HVDC projects are being built with an increasingly higher proportion of domestic manufacturing content, experts say.
