The High Temperature Superconductivity (HTS) Program works in partnership with industry to develop high temperature superconducting wire and perform other research and development activities leading to the commercialization of HTS electric power applications by U.S. companies. The Department is partnering today with industry to develop cost-effective transmission solutions, including advanced composite conductors, high temperature superconductors, and wide area measurement systems. The Program conducts industry-led systems research, which tests device-specific electric power applications using HTS wires available today, in an attempt to accelerate the development of these products.
