Global energy network is an important platform to guarantee effective exploitation of global clean energy and ensure reliable energy supply for everybody. Global Energy Interconnection analyzes the current situation and challenges of global energy development, provides the strategic thinking, overall objective, basic pattern, construction method and development mode for the development of global energy network. Based on the prediction of global energy and electricity supply and demand in the future, with the development of UHV AC/DC and smart grid techlogies, this book offers new solutions to drive the safe, clean, highly efficient and sustainable development of global energy. The concept and development ideas concerning global energy interconnection in this book are based on the author's thinking of strategic issues about China's and the world's energy and electricity development for many years, especially combined with successful practices of China's UHV development. This book is particularly suitable for researchers and graduated students engaged in energy sector, as well as energy ecomics researchers, ecomists, consultants, and government energy policy makers in relevant fields.
Professor Zhenya Liu, has been the senior engineer, President and Chairman of the State Grid Corporation of China since 2002 and has been engaged in electric power and energy work for many years. His published books include, Electric Power and Energy in China , Ultra-high Voltage AC/DC Grids, and Smart Grid Technology. The concept and development ideas concerning global energy interconnection in this book are based on the author's many years of involvement in the strategic issues of China's and the world's energy and electricity development, especially combined this, with the successful practices of China's UHV development.
