, April 30, 2014

A superconductor cable of German utilities company RWE is pictured during a presentation in Essen on April 30. RWE officially integrated the world's longest superconductor cable into Essen's power grid and put it into operation for the first time, according to a statement by RWE. This is a year after RWE launched a pilot project to install cables spanning as long as one kilometer that could transport five times more electricity than conventional cables.
