China’s Ambitious Plan to Build the World’s Biggest Supergrid


"A massive expansion leads to the first ultrahigh-voltage AC-DC power grid...Gregory Reed, a DC transmission expert who runs the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Energy, says China’s UHV grid puts it far ahead of the rest of the world. “They’re investing significantly, and they’ve gone right to the highest levels of technology capability from day one. There’s no comparison anywhere else in the world. It’s like we’re all still pedaling our bicycles, while the Formula 1 race car goes flying by.”

I thought the AC/DC issue had been solved by Tesla showing AC more efficient and surprised to see they're using both.

It's interesting that they supposedly have the worst air pollution in the sense of how it will play out in the Green Dreem scenario.


I like to watch Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez because of all the big hand gestures and facial expressions she uses when she talks.

What does AOC have to do with this?

The Green Dreem energy program she pushes as a tie-in.

Or did I feebly wander off-topic again with that comment?

There have been some new developments since Tesla.

In the mid-1950s, high-voltage direct current transmission was developed, and is now an option instead of long-distance high voltage alternating current systems.
...
For long-distance transmission, HVDC systems may be less expensive and suffer lower electrical losses.

if China is communist and N. Korea is communist, look at the differences between the two in just about everything related to its growth in just about everything, RUSSIA when the iron curtain fell, it is said that even their telephone system was ten years behind the USA phone system. There is no reports of mass starvation or having to wait in lines for a piece of, or bag of rice which would take place of bread lines in RUSSIA.

lots of different export items come out of China that the USA and other countries use for their commerce. Made in China is most likely on many things other countries buy today. Now China is building something else, where N. Korea is building what, while its people starve to death?

Many differences, for one N. Korea is a Communist dictatorship, China is a unique hybrid of Capitalism and Socialism, they call it Chinese Communism. In many ways China is more capitalistic then the USA. Since the late 1990's/early 2000's China has become more and more capitalistic, allowing more private enterprise, private ownership. They also come up with (at the "federal" level) long term planning objectives that they actually stick to, for example: if they create a 20 year plan to revamp all of the levies, dikes, canals in the country...then that is the major focus for those 20 years, they typically come up with 5 year, 25 year and 60 year plans. Their next major project is the "belt and road" initiative, which is already underway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belt_and_Road_Initiative

Another example: China to implement eight major initiatives with African countries http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201...37441563_2.htm
