Posted By: Paul in MontrealHVDC is used in Quebec where some of the connections are over 1500km long. End-to-end losses (including conversion) are less than 6%
Posted By: DamonHDAnd even if we did 'waste' 20% of the energy in transit, given the lack of fuel that went in, and compared to losses in heat engines such as conventional thermal generators, would that be so bad?
Posted By: tonyIceland dont need us for energy! They are more than self sufficient have access to virtually unlimited heat and plentiful sources of electricity.

Posted By: BrianwilsonHas anyone considered the heating impact of cables on seabed plus the of rapid increase in coastal based biomass powerplants dumping two thirds of the energy into the sea? We are told rising sea temperature is the main climate change concern, just a thought!
Posted By: tonyNo, we are a ball orbiting in space which is very cold, the sun keeps us warm, even if we tried we could not generate sufficient energy to boil ourselves as as or temperature increases so do our heat losses, this is a fourth power relationship as discovered by Stefan...
