Innovation within hydrogeological instability

Torrential rains and downpours devastated Europe over the course of 2014. Recent studies demonstrate that these kinds of phenomena may double by 2050, for an estimated 23 billion euro in collateral damages. Prevention is of paramount importance in order to limit the social costs of these events, and must be planned in a strategic manner in order to avoid hydrogeological instability. From a climatic [...]

HVDC Environmental Impact

The environmental impact of an HVDC interconnection system HVDC SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT HVDC technology is the only feasible solution when crossing long marine distances. This is the case of some electric interconnection projects in the Mediterranean Sea area. In fact, for long-distance transmission, HVDC systems may be less expensive and suffer lower electrical losses and underwater power cables avoids [...]

HVDC: Back to the future

​The future began in Gotland in 1950. It is here, between this island 90 kilometers off the coast of Sweden and the mainland, that the first direct current connection for the transmission of electricity was made. Though limited in size and power, the project has had enormous resonance. In fact, the prototype developed by ABB showed the world that transmitting energy in HVDC is possible. The technology [...]

Dam Safety for Hydropower Development

Hydropower projects can actively contribute topoverty reduction and life quality enhancementin local communities Hydropower is renewable because it draws its essential energy from the sun which drives the hydrologic cycle that, in turn, provides a continuous renewable supply of water. Hydropower accounts for more than 92 percent of all renewable energy generated and continues to be one of the most [...]
