A number of high-voltage direct current (HVDC) projects are being contemplated to boost interconnectivity across Canada. These interconnections between regions and even countries are needed more than ever as more renewable energy sources are added to the grid to offset retirements of coal-fueled power plants and to meet load growth driven by increased electrification. HVDC is an optimal way to transmit bulk electricity across long distances on the grid.
However, HVDC projects are putting pressure on global supply chains as well as regional decarbonization timelines. Given these constraints and elevated risks to cost and schedule, how should utilities and developers approach planning for their HVDC projects? In this webinar, Marianne Goldsborough and Ahsan Upal discuss some key considerations and provide an opportunity to ask questions.
