Storyboard Text

  • Today our studio guest is Julia Beck. She is the MD of a big German electric company. Welcome to the show!
  • Thanks.
  • We´ve heard so much about electricity from offshore wind turbines or solar power from the hot regions of the earth, but is it realistic to transmit electricity so far to a country like germany?
  • Sure these ways are long, but there is an alternative to our conventionel high voltage transmit system.
  • Now you´ve got me interested! Do you perhaps mean rechargeable batteries in every household?
  • No, but some american companies are working on a high voltage DC transmit system.
  • That sounds complicated! Can you give our listeners some  more details?
  • Well, the transmission losses are minimal and there are no technical limits of the transmit distance but this technology can only be used for point to point applications.
  • Thanks for telling us what the future will bring!
  • Thanks for the possibility to talk about the future of the power grid.
