Nexans Climate Day 2020 fun facts
Innovation holds the key to delivering the European Green Deal.
The ambition is huge. By 2050, Europe intends to be the world’s first climate-neutral continent. To achieve this, renewable generation will need to replace the electricity currently produced using fossil fuels. This must be achieved while catering for a rapid increase in global electricity demand, which is expected to rise by more than 40% over the next 20 years.
Superconductors were once the stuff of science fiction. Now they’re transforming the way electricity is delivered.
Imagine if you could channel the power of three nuclear power stations through a single cable. It sounds impossible, but that’s exactly what can be achieved with Nexans’ “Best Paths” cable – and it’s just 17cm in diameter.
The impact of Covid-19 on electricity consumption is unprecedented. Lockdown saw demand fall by 20% or more in some countries*. The short-term outlook remains challenging: global demand is expected to fall 5% in 2020* – the biggest drop since the 1930s.
