In any country, network losses are the single biggest use of electricity. In the OECD region, network losses amount for 4-10% of electricity generated. This webinar discusses the importance of network losses, their determinants and improvement potential, and how losses can be expected to evolve in the future.
Are network losses related to population density and electricity use, or do they rather depend on network design? If so, is there a large scope for improvement by changing network topology and the specification of network components such as cables and
transformers, or is the current network too deeply embedded in the fabric of society, and only open to minor changes?
