In this report, we have tracked 1,781 high-voltage transmission line projects across 101 countries and from six regions - North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The tracked projects include163 cross-border projects, of which 92 are located in Europe, 39 in Africa, 22in Asia Pacific, six in Latin America, and four in the Middle East.
The projects have been classified as either under construction or, under contractor selection, or under development, or announced/proposed, or on hold.
The package comprises a PDF report and an excel database. The PDF report provides an introduction to the database and an analysis of the projects included in the database, in terms of region, voltage level, technology, type of line and status.
The excel database provides detailed and up-to-date information on each project, including a description, developers, route, rated voltage(kV),technology (AC or DC), length (km), estimated cost, current status, contractors, scheduled completion, and contact details. There is a separate excel work book for each of the six regions.
The report only tracks transmission projects with 220 kV and above voltage levels and with more than 25 km of line length. However, in some cases, depending upon the importance of the project, projects with lower line lengths and lower voltages have been included. Projects at less than 220 kV voltages and less than 25 km line length mainly include undersea cable, underground cable, and high voltage direct current (HVDC) projects
