IVAC-RED: Insulation Vacuum of Superconducting Cables for Renewable Energy Distribution


The objective of this project is to provide CERN expertise in vacuum systems to support ongoing industrial efforts to develop innovative superconducting cables capable of handling the increased share of renewable energy necessary to achieve decarbonisation. The project will be carried out in collaboration with SuperNode, a cutting-edge global technology development company that designs superconducting connection systems to connect renewable generation and increase grid interconnection in mature markets.
