Our commitment to the energy transition
The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy requires an efficient, smart, and robust energy grid to meet the special challenges of managing these discontinuous power sources. Interconnectors are an increasingly important part of power grids, allowing for connections between countries and even continents to ease the flow of affordable and clean energy across long distances.
They are a key part of the energy transition: supporting the implementation of a larger, more integrated, efficient and sustainable power transmission system. Prysmian’s submarine interconnectors are made of new, lighter materials and can go deeper under the sea than ever before.
Our high-voltage underground interconnectors can bring power more efficiently over long distances from where the energy is produced (like offshore wind farms) to where energy is consumed. To accelerate the race to net-zero CO2 emissions, Prysmian plans to invest over 450 million euro by 2022 to further improve the sustainability of its organization and supply chain, and to accelerate the development of advanced cable technologies as well as assets and services.
