East Coast Offshore Cable Feasibility Study

The final purpose of this report is to analyze the feasibility of the offshore segment of the HVDC grid through the analysis of real world data, a step towards a nationwide underground efficient and safe power grid and towards...

Preliminary Technical Report

The proposed underground HVDC grid would be best implemented by building a nodal bipolar system coupled with voltage source converter (VSC) stations. This configuration enables maximum resilience and flexibility in the bi-directional transportation of renewably-sourced electricity with minimal environmental...
