sf6 gas-policy development in the Netherlands

As shown in this paper the Netherlands tries to develop a balanced policy for ncgg’s in close co-operation with industry. With its active approach the Netherlands policy strives for the use of switchgear that reduces overall greenhouse gas emissions. This will include Sulfr hexafluoride-insulated switchgear for the foreseeable future.

The insulating gas leakage rate measurements in the Netherlands and Germany will be aligned starting from January 2015. In addition, we have set ourselves the ambition to reduce our relative insulating gas emissions by 20% in 2020 compared to 2015. On top of that an absolute target has been set that sf 6 leakage until 2020 will not exceed the 2015 level, knowing that our asset base will increase.

Do Better Solutions Exist?Conclusionsf 6 is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all insulating gasproduced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry sf6 gasis used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.
