Best Paths demonstrations explained in 3 minutes

5 September 2017 – The EU-funded Best Paths project unites expert partners around five large-scale demonstrations to validate the technical feasibility, costs, impacts and benefits of novel grid technologies allowing larger capacity and flexibility of the network. The results will lead to further integration of renewable energies into Europe’s energy mix.


The 5 industry-led demonstrations aim to:


  • Deliver solutions to allow for transition from High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) lines to HVDC grids;
  • Upgrade and repower existing Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) parts of the network; and
  • Integrate superconducting high power DC links within an AC meshed network.
