Europacable hosts Breakfast Briefing for German MPs in Berlin

On Wednesday, 27 January, Europacable has hosted a breakfast briefing in Berlin, inviting leading members of the Bundestag involved in Germany´s grid debate.

Following the adoption of a new “Undergrounding Legislation” in December last year by the Bundestag, Germany now leads the way in giving priority for undergrounding for new HVDC projects as well as allowing for partial undergrounding of – as of today – 11 HVAC projects.

Set against this context, Europacable presented the current state of the art of extra-high voltage AC and DC cables and stressed again, that cable technology and capacity are fully available to deliver the underground transmission technology that will be required for Germany to roll out the “Energiewende”.
