AMSC Releases White Paper on Superconductor Electricity Pipelines

American Superconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: AMSC), a leading energy technologies company, has published a white paper entitled "Superconductor Electricity Pipelines Carrying Renewable Electricity Across the U.S.A. Out of Sight and Out of Harm's Way."

This paper details the benefits of direct current (DC) superconductor cables for long-haul transmission of renewable energy.


A significant challenge facing the U.S. in the near term will be carrying 100's of gigawatts of green power from the country's rural heartlands to urban load centers. Plans for interstate 765 kV overhead power lines requiring 400- to 600-foot-wide rights of way are being considered. Placed underground in existing rights-of-way, Superconductor Electricity Pipelines could carry this same amount of power in a three-foot pipe. Superconductor Electricity Pipelines are much more efficient, cost competitive and, with the ability to leverage existing rights of way, are easier to site.
