Expert: Project of ‘Super grids’ will increase the reliability of energy supply in the world

According to the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee Chairman, the Nobel laureate Rae Kwon Chung, ‘Super grids’ will enable countries to establish connectivity between their national energy systems and strengthen regional integration. Inter-state energy programs can be implemented thanks to ‘super grids’- lines of high-voltage direct current networks, capable of transmitting electricity to a distance up to 6 thousand km with minimal losses and without harming the environment. ‘This will increase the reliability of energy supply and strengthen regional integration’, said Chairman of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee, the Nobel Prize Laureate Rae Kwon Chung. However, according to Chung, there are a number of challenges that hinder the widespread adoption of ‘super grids’. First, these are political barriers and lack of investment.
