Breakthrough Energy Ventures, National Grid Partners and NextEra Energy Invest in TS Conductor to Meet Demand for Greener Electricity

TS Conductor Corp. | November 16, 2021

TS Conductor Corp., a pioneer in high-efficiency conductors for electricity grids, announced that Breakthrough Energy Ventures, National Grid Partners and a subsidiary of NextEra Energy have joined Talkot and Hervé Touati in its oversubscribed Series a financing, for a total $25 million in funding. The new capital will be used to build the company’s first state of the art manufacturing plant in the United States. “We are thrilled to have Breakthrough Energy Ventures, National Grid Partners and a subsidiary of NextEra Energy investing in TS Conductor. Our mission is to make electricity networks greener. TS achieves that through a combination of energy efficiency and faster and cheaper renewable integration.” Dr. Jason Huang, CEO at TS Conductor Corp While the electricity generation segment of the energy industry has progressed to cleaner and more efficient solutions, the overhead conductor technology used by transmission and distribution grid operators has not materially changed since the emergence of Aluminum Core Steel Reinforced (ACSR) cables in 1908. ACSR still today represents over 95 percent of the utility cables deployed across the world. According to Market Study Report, LLC, the global wires and cables market was estimated to represent $183 billion of sales in 2020, with an annual compounded growth rate anticipated to exceed 4 percent until 2028. Global investment in the power sector reached $780 billion in 2020 and was largely dominated by renewable power (48 percent) and electricity networks (32 percent) investments, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). While considerable, the IEA notes that current levels of renewable energy and energy efficiency investments still fall short of what is needed to maintain global temperatures well below a 2 ºC rise. The UN climate targets create the need for new cable technologies that can reduce electricity network losses and accelerate the connection of wind and solar farms, which is one of the major bottlenecks of renewable energy expansion. Network losses amount to approximately 2000 TWh annually, or 6.7 times the electricity consumption of the U.K. “Transmission is fundamentally important to our climate mission, yet it has seen limited innovation over the years. It is rare to find a transmission technology like TS Conductor with as much potential in terms of deployability, cost and efficiency,” said Carmichael Roberts, Breakthrough Energy Ventures. “TS Conductor will be a major enabler of increasing electricity demand and increasing penetration of renewables in a critical time. We are delighted to lead this round with a stand-out team and an outstanding technology.” “National Grid has committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions 90 percent by 2040 and to net zero by 2050, and to accelerating the incorporation of wind, solar and battery storage in our grids in the UK and North America,” said Lisa Lambert, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer of National Grid and the President and Founder of National Grid Partners. “There are few solutions enabling grid operators to reduce their electricity consumption, and TS Conductor is the most impressive solution I have encountered so far to decarbonize electricity grids. Their product, when combined with a top-notch management team, positions TS Conductor to be a leader in the market.” TS Conductor was founded in 2018 by Rulong Chen, James Huang and Jason Huang, based on James Huang’s patented conductor design. This new class of conductors is based on a unique combination of carbon composite and aluminum encapsulation of the composite core. The conductors can be installed with the same tools and operating procedures as ACSR cables. And they are compatible with industry standard field practice and can be used for: Line reconductoring, allowing for the doubling of capacity of an existing line without having to change or retrofit any structures. Energy efficiency upgrades, reducing technical line losses by half without having to change or retrofit any structures. Insulation upgrades of distribution networks, reducing forest fire risks without having to change the poles or towers. Building new lines with lower structure costs and/or better characteristics (in capacity, efficiency, insulation). TS Conductor is also part of the first cohort of Third Derivative. Founded by Rocky Mountain Institute and New Energy Nexus, Third Derivative is a global climate technology startup accelerator with the mission of building an inclusive ecosystem that rapidly finds, funds and scales climate tech innovation. About TS Conductor TS Conductor products allow transmission & distribution grid operators to be active participants to the energy transition – by reducing line losses and accelerating the integration of wind, solar and battery storage - while leveraging existing infrastructure assets. Our products can be used to substitute ACSR conductors using the same tools and installation procedures. TS Conductor is a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), and a public benefit company focused on sustainable development and GHG reduction.

NextEra, Iberdrola, Enel Challenging Major Green Energy Companies Exxon, BP

NextEra | December 14, 2020

A decade ago, NextEra, Iberdrola and Enel were lethargic local utilities with little name acknowledgment. Presently they are quickly developing monsters with market esteems matching any semblance of oil majors Exxon Mobil Corp. and BP PLC, on account of their initial in with no reservations wagers on wind and sunlight based homesteads. And still, numerous individuals have never known about them. Their initial lead in the worldwide progress away from oil has put these organizations on target to turn into the significant energy organizations of the coming many years—the "environmentally friendly power energy majors." But they currently face the danger of expanded rivalry as a portion of the oil titans that have generally ruled the energy business broaden into wind and sun oriented force. On the off chance that the green majors are apprehensive about a coming conflict, they aren't indicating it. NextEra Energy Inc. CEO James Robo excused the possibility that oil studies the U.S. and Europe represented a serious danger at a speculator gathering this fall, saying that the organizations' green tasks were among the most noticeably terrible he had seen.
