SF6 in HV technology: in a new KEMA Labs webinar the sustainable alternatives

SF6 in HV technology: in a new KEMA Labs webinar the sustainable alternatives
07 . Sep . 2021

Although SF6 gas has been the workhorse of HV technology for decades, combining a ‘close to ideal’ combination of excellent insulation and superior current interruption, this gas is the most potent greenhouse gas on earth, having a CO2 equivalent (GWP – Global Warming Potential) of 23,500. Therefore, the industry is looking towards sustainable alternatives that can replace it, for example, in T&D switchgear and SF6-free vacuum switchgear.

This will be the focus of the new and free KEMA Labs webinar High-voltage switchgear: The road towards SF6 alternatives – which will take place on Thursday, September 16 th , at 4pm (CEST) .

Our expert René Smeets (Innovation Specialist at KEMA Labs), together with John Owens (Lead Research Specialist – 3M), will speak about the physical, health, environmental and safety aspects of alternative gases, like fluoronitriles and fluoroketones , while also showcasing pilot projects that demonstrate how SF6 gas alternatives are, indeed, possible and more sustainable .
