General information

Transition Initiative 1 (TRI 1), on integrated net-zero emissions energy system, prepared for Joint Call 2023 Call Module 1: “DC technologies for power networks”, dedicated to enabling and supporting technologies to foster:

  • the deployment of low (LVDC), medium (MVDC) and high voltage direct current (HVDC) networks
  • the integration of energy islands, both offshore and onshore
  • the integration of DC and hybrid (AC/DC) networks
  • LVDC applications for the integration of RES, EVs and industrial processes in the grid

RES integration into the energy system requires a fundamental change in infrastructure. Direct current (DC) technologies can have a leading role thanks to their flexibility, efficiency and sustainability. HVDC is essential for offshore generation, for the integration of energy islands and its role is becoming increasingly important for long-distance transmission as well. MVDC, both at distribution and micro grid level, is crucial for the connection of large RES and DC loads. LVDC is getting more interest for its role in integrating different local resources (generation, storage, conversion, load) at industrial, building, street and district level, improving efficiency and reducing losses.

In front of these trends, which imply the integration among DC grids and actual grid infrastructures and the spread of meshed, multi-terminal, multi-vendor configurations, even at higher voltage levels, new instruments are needed concerning operation, control, maintenance, planning and markets.
