If the U.S. is serious about offshore wind, regulators should think seriously about how the energy gets back to shore. “There’s a strong case to be made for taking the transmission portion [of projects] and treating it as a separate entity,” said Neil Kirby, HVDC business development manager at GE Energy Connections. If every project developer takes responsibility for their own grid interconnection, then some may end up choosing a technology that is less than optimal for their projects, thereby increasing costs. Offshore wind farms can use either alternating current (AC) or high-voltage direct current (HVDC) links to export current to shore. Selecting the right technology for a given location can make a measurable difference to capital costs and production losses. In a nutshell, HVDC has higher capital costs but is much better than AC for transporting large amounts of ener...
