Desertec to look more closely into Asian Super Grid concept

The Desertec Foundation, which has the blueprint for an ambitious solar energy program in the Middle East and North Africa region, and the Japan Renewable Energy Foundation are formally cooperating for a planned Asian Super Grid.

In a formal agreement, the two nonprofits said they will exchange knowledge and expertise and coordinate their work on how to develop a suitable framework for deploying renewables in the region, with the establishment of a transnational cooperation in Greater East Asia that this entails.

Their work will give special focus on the possible interconnection of the national grids of Japan, Korea, China, Mongolia and Russia in low-loss High-Voltage Direct Current transmission lines.

These transmission lines would enable the delivery of electricity from the region's most abundant renewable energy sources to its centers of demand while simultaneously balancing out the peaks and troughs of fluctuating renewable energy sources over a wider area.

"The efficient use of the practically inexhaustible energy of the East Asian desert sun in combination with the expansion of renewable energies can sustainably improve living conditions for current and future generations in the region," said Dr. Thiemo Gropp, Desertec director.

"It also offers Asian countries the chance to take a leading role in the fight against climate change by harnessing the most abundant of all energy sources on earth." – EcoSeed Staff
