The planned increase of electric energy produced from renewable energy sources in Europe during the time-frame of 2020 to 2050 calls for significant changes in the electric transmission and distribution system. Low loss long distance transmission is needed to bridge the increased distance between generation and load. Demand side participation can be used to balance the increased share of intermittent generation caused by the character of wind and solar production. The presentation will describe how combinations of Multiterminal HVDC and smart grid technologies can be applied, exemplified by ongoing demonstration projects.
