Overview | Albany HTS Cable Project
The increased performance of HTS power cables will enable utilities to upgrade power density by 2 to 8 times in existing power corridors because HTS cables transmit power with essentially no electrical resistance. Currently, 7 - 10% of the electricity generated in the U.S. is lost because of the resistance inherent in conventional copper cables. This increased capacity is especially appealing for congested urban areas and for locations where there are limited rights-of-way.
