In our drive to address global warming, this workshop considers the current status and outlook for technical alternatives to SF6 switching equipment, and in particular, their impact on TSO/DSO applications.



Focal points include:

  • Relevant features of new media and performance comparison with SF6

  • Pilot projects demonstrating new products in transmission and distribution applications

  • Asset management guidelines for the (potential) users of SF6-free switchgear

  • Lifetime considerations, including HSE aspects

  • Implications for standardization and testing
