Cables to meet the growing energy needs

Electricity that flows almost without losses? Electrical resistance that simply disappears? High-temperature superconductors are the answer.

Energy is the engine of the world – especially for megacities. Urbanization increases energy density and makes space a scarce premium. Our yttrium-barium-copper-oxide tapes conduct electricity without resistance. Superconducting cables can therefore use existing cable ducts and substations to carry much more power to the inner city than conventional copper cables. In addition, the grid becomes more reliable with superconducting fault current limiter which help to avoid power outages caused by short circuits.
