Best Paths

Beyond state-of-the-art technologies for power AC corridors and multi-terminal HVDC systems

Challenge: By 2050 the majority of Europe’s electricity will come from renewables. But bringing this electricity to consumers requires the modernisation of 300,000 km of transmission lines and cables.

Solution: Best Paths – the largest energy project funded under FP7 – focused on the development of high-capacity transmission networks needed to meet Europe’s long-term energy goals and incorporation of renewable energy sources. The project united expert partners around five large-scale demonstration areas focused on ensuring increased network capacity and system flexibility – incorporating innovative transmission systems and industrial solutions to link offshore wind farms and improve the interconnections of the entire power grid.

Duration: October 2014 – September 2018

Our role

We were responsible for Communication & Dissemination of the project results, organising stakeholder workshops at each of the five demonstration sites and a high-level policy conference in Brussels.
