    This multi-contract framework, introduced by Hitachi Energy, is one of the first of new business models for the US. This new approach allows Hitachi Energy to plan in advance to increase manufacturing capacity, expand and train the workforce, and maximize standardization to increase efficiency between successive projects. Today’s announcement follows a similar approach taken with large utilities in Europe, and is a key innovation in securing the supply chain for the energy transition.

    The new interconnections will provide long-term economic benefits to communities across the country by facilitating the sharing of energy resources between power grids. Connecting the grids will alleviate network congestion and increase grid resilience and flexibility, helping to mitigate the impact of extreme weather events.

    Hitachi Energy has provided HVDC solutions to North American customers since 1970 and now has more than 20 projects in the US and Canada, either in operation or under construction. As of today, the company has about 10 GW of renewable energy integrated, excluding the projects currently under implementation.  


    Notes to Editors

    Hitachi Energy’s HVDC projects in the US and Canada include the Pacific Intertie1, connecting California and Oregon, to several projects currently under execution, including Champlain Hudson Power Express2, to bring hydropower from Canada to New York City, SunZia Transmission3, which will transport wind power from New Mexico to Arizona, and more. Hitachi Energy is contributing significantly to strengthening US power infrastructure.
