Supergrid - Super Solution sets out how this can be done in therEuropean context, with Ireland playing a lead role through deployment of its vast offshore wind resources. This is in a new energy supply system delivering consistently cheaper power, all made possible by using 'superconductor' technology.
Supergrid - Super Solution outlines:
- The masterplan by a global leader in developing renewable energy with input from leading energy experts.
- The creation of an energy revolution using superconductor cables to deliver electricity from offshore wind and solar to areas of peak demand at the heart of Europe through rollout of the supergrid - by deploying already proven technology.
Ireland's opportunity to become a renewables exporter of green power.
-The special advantage for counties along the western seaboard, which is set to witness unprecedented economic opportunity because of record wind speeds the nearby Atlantic that will be harnessed by floating turbines.
-The need for courage and collective action by states and the private sector to work fogether in the best interests of humanity and planet Earth.
Supergrid - Super Solution is essential reading for anyone interested in practical solutions to achieving net zero.
About the Authors:
Eddie O’Connor is a global leader in renewable energy development. He built Ireland’s first commercial wind farm in 1992 while at the helm of Bord na Móna, and went on build successful renewable energy companies across the world, including Airtricity and Mainstream Renewable Power, for which he received widespread international recognition.
In 2018, he founded SuperNode in an attempt to resolve one of the greatest logistical challenges of our age: the building of a supergrid in Europe by transporting electricity vast distances from where it can be generated to where there is most demand. Described as a ‘green evangelist’, he was named World Energy Policy leader by Scientific American in 2003. He was first-ever winner of the Ernst & Young Global Renewable Energy Awards (known as the Green Oscars) in 2009. He continues to be one of the most influential figures in the US clean energy sector and at the highest levels of energy policy in the EU.
Kevin O’Sullivan is environment & science editor of the Irish Times. He covers climate change, renewable energy and sustainability for the newspaper and irishtimes.com.
