Interview: The power supplies of the future.
This storyboard does not have a description.
Today our studio guest is Julia Beck. She is the MD of a big German electric company. Welcome to the show!
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.
