Impact assessment of F-gas free medium voltage switchgear

Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) plays an important role as an insulating gas in electrical switchgear. A research study investigated the development of MV switchgear installations under different boundaries showing the impact on SF6 emissions, and analyzed the market acceptance of SF6-free alternatives, as well as barriers and drivers to adoption.
