The global investment in power grids and cables are expected to overpass the investment in solar and wind power itself by 2050. Large-scale expansion of offshore power generation is introducing new challenges in power transmission in terms of reliability and efficiency. Grid complexity increases as interconnections within these power systems are expanding and the cost efficient HVDC technology has become increasingly more important for the long-distance transmission of offshore power to the onshore grid. The use of HVDC transmission technology offers numerous benefits in long-distance transmission, bulk electricity delivery, transmission costs and the environment. In the era of energy transition, further considerations need to be discussed for long-term expansion planning, new transmission standards, large offshore platforms, multipurpose interconnectors, super grids and other innovative topologies.
3rd HVDC Offshore Power Transmission & Technology 2023 welcomes decision-makers from power transmission departments of leading Power Generation and TSOs in an exclusive closed-group and business-friendly environment for peer-to-peer networking, ample knowledge-sharing and learning opportunities in the highly evolving energy sector. This event will examine latest developments, challenges, opportunities and technologies of HVDC and grid technology to support the expansion of offshore power transmission.

Xlinks is a leading UK renewable energy company that aims to provide clean, sustainable energy at a subsidy-free price. Xlinks uses an established HVDC system to address the issue of continuous supply. The Morocco-UK Power Project, a large-scale renewable energy project proposed by Xlinks, will generate 10.5 GW of clean energy from large-scale solar and wind facilities in Morocco and provide ultra-low-cost, zero-carbon electricity that will be connected through reliable HVDC interconnector technology on a 3800 km route under the seabed to the UK to power seven million homes by the end of the decade.
SuperGrid Institute is an Independent research and innovation center based in France dedicated to developing electric power systems that aim to increase energy efficiency and integrate renewable resources into the grid on a wide scale. The HVDC Cable Systems and Junctions research program that they focus on of the SuperGrid Institute develops technological components for HVDC cable systems and studies high-performance materials to be utilized in the DC Grid. These programs are among the five research domains that the SuperGrid Institute focuses on about high voltage networks, energy conversions, and direct current systems. They have 285 worldwide publications in addition to 91 patent applications.
RTE is a key player within Europe’s power system and France’s transmission system operator. RTE is in charge of a great network of more than 105,000 km of high- and ultra-high-voltage lines connecting France and neighboring European nations.
