Published on 21 June 2021

Overview

An optimised onshore and offshore grid architecture is essential for the integration of renewable energy in the European power system. To become climate-neutral the EU needs 300 GW of offshore wind by 2050. The interoperability of multi-terminal and multi-vendor HVDC systems is essential to achieve this.

ENTSO-E, T&D Europe and WindEurope have teamed up to tackle the challenge of HVDC interoperability in offshore wind development. The report on the “Workstream for the development of multi-vendor HVDC systems and other power electronics interfaced devices” presents their joint perspective on research directions to solve the technical challenges on the development, delivery and deployment of multi-terminal, multi-vendor, multi-purpose HVDC systems integrating multiple converter stations from a variety of technology providers.
