  • Grid switchgear uses SF6, the world’s most potent

    Nov 25, 201980% of all SF6 is used in gas insulated switchgear, a vital component of the grid (isolating and protecting different sections), so it’s an energy sector issue. Nicholas Ottersbach at Nuventura (a cleantech startup developing ways to replace

  • Blog | Ending the use of SF₆ in power grids | Eaton | UK

    Ending the use of SF₆ in power grids with air insulated switchgear. SF6 gas has been called the power grid’s dirty secret. This potent greenhouse gas is still commonly used in switchgear because it’s such an effective insulator. However, with a global warming potential 23,500 times higher than CO2, SF6 poses a huge challenge for the future.

  • ABB Conversations Eco-efficient alternatives to SF6

    May 30, 2019The switchgear according to their DY800 specification mainly uses the ambient air as insulation medium, but also has an SF 6 containment for a combined vacuum-interrupter and disconnector-earthing switch. To meet their needs of a climate-friendly alternative to SF 6, ENEL joined forces with ABB to develop switchgear based on their DY800 specification using the AirPlus

  • Air insulated switchgear | SF₆-free | Eaton

    The EU comission decided against a ban of SF 6 in switchgear, claiming that there were no widespread cost-effective, technically feasible, energy-efficient and reliable alternatives. Even with the ban for all other applications, scientific studies show that the concentration of SF₆ gas in the atmosphere continues to rise - a trend that is likely to accelerate due to the ever increasing demand for energy.
