Ocean Currents - The world of submarine power cables


As renewable energy generation moves offshore, there is an increasing focus on the submarine power cables that carry "green" energy to onshore regional power grids. This is especially the case for the rapidly expanding offshore wind turbine farms. Ocean Currents is a new documentary, commissioned by the ICPC, to provide an informative overview of submarine power cables from their beginnings in the 19th century to the modern day when they are now an integral part of the global energy supply.
