Talk by Dr Gregor Czisch at the 5th Claverton Energy Conference, House of Commons June 19th 2009

Dr. Czisch gave a presentation which shows that with the large scale HVDC interconnection of Europe - the “European Supergrid” Europe can have 100% renewable energy at about the cost of today’s electricity - with all capital costs factored in –  summarised here, 

Rather than publish a duplicate paper on this site, Gregor has given us these links to his site where the various papers can be studied.

The most relevant one for English speakers is probably this one:

    Czisch’s proposal of a European supergrid appears to be one of the most cost-effective steps towards the provision of sustainable energy. How else do we want to deal with fluktuation and storage problems? What is cheaper and more developed than wind turbines as a source of renewable energy?
