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 16th, 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.
