Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been a hot topic in the international science and technology industry since their discovery in 1991. A quick glance through nearly any mainstream technology publication around the world will yield dozens of articles and commentaries on the potential applications of CNTs in just about all industries. These articles include discussions of the CNT properties that make them ideal for transmission network cables and wiring. Utilities may be historically slow adopters of new technologies, but the benefits of CNTs are hard to ignore. Despite their grid efficiency and reliability benefits, CNTs bear a significant price tag, which poses a barrier to their eventual deployment across transmission and distribution (T&D) networks.

CNTs are unique due to their physical and chemical properties, which offer an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio and superior conductivity, among other characteristics. They can take many forms, each of which presents its own set of advantages and challenges in both manufacturing and deployment. Among the challenges that stand in the way of widespread adoption is the relative lack of cost-effective manufacturing capabilities to produce CNTs large enough for practical grid applications. Yet, by continuing to prioritize scientific development and building strong relationships between market contributors, key players in the CNT market have the potential to improve transmission network efficiency and reliability.

This Navigant Research report provides a snapshot of the global utility market for CNTs, highlighting significant CNT characteristics and discussing challenges for grid integration. The study provides an overview of CNTs and an analysis of the potential benefits they can provide to the electric grid. In addition, this report provides recommendations for utilities, vendors, and research labs on how to overcome current obstacles and drive eventual utility deployment.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What are carbon nanotubes (CNTs)?
  • How can CNTs be used on the electric grid?
  • What kinds of CNTs are being studied for grid integration?

Carbon Nanotubes Have the Potential to Improve Transmission Network Efficiency and Reliability

Prioritizing scientific development and building strong relationships among market contributors is expected to help drive carbon nanotube adoption in the utility industry

April 10, 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines the global utility market for carbon nanotubes (CNTs), highlighting significant CNT characteristics and challenges for grid integration, as well as providing recommendations for utilities, vendors, and research labs.

CNTs, small tubes composed of carbon atoms, are ideal for transmission network cables and wiring. Due to their physical and chemical properties, they offer an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio and superior conductivity, however, high costs and other challenges have so far deterred adoption.  According to a new report from Navigant Research, CNT market players can work to change this by prioritizing scientific development and building strong relationships among market contributors.

“The utility industry stands to benefit tremendously from the conductivity and strength-to-weight characteristics of CNTs, as the tubes could be integrated into transmission and distribution (T&D) networks to enhance power delivery efficiency and reliability,” says Michael Hartnack, research analyst with Navigant Research. “With the right strategies, key players in the CNT market have the potential to improve transmission network efficiency and reliability.”

According to the report, science labs should continue to push the envelope with innovation in the synthesis, production, and deployment of CNTs, while vendors should strive to reduce costs and improve large-scale manufacturing capabilities. Utilities, meanwhile, should build relationships with vendors and labs and, if possible, create R&D teams to drive innovation.

The report, Improving Transmission Efficiency with Carbon Nanotube Technology, provides a snapshot of the global utility market for CNTs, highlighting significant CNT characteristics and discussing challenges for grid integration. The study provides an overview of CNTs and an analysis of the potential benefits they can provide to the electric grid. In addition, this report provides recommendations for utilities, vendors, and research labs on how to overcome current obstacles and drive eventual utility deployment.
