Development of the eco-friendly alternative technologies is an inevitable choice in the construction of the new power system to achieve the carbon peaking and neutrality goals. With the consideration of the demand for carbon reduction in the power grid, the focus needs to be on the green and low-carbon innovation and development of the power equipment, especially with a strong emphasis on tackling the fundamental theories and key technologies related to the novel insulation materials with low-carbon and eco-friendly features. In terms of the gas insulating material, SF6 gas is strictly restricted for using in the power equipment and banned from emissions due to its strongest greenhouse effect and longer atmospheric lifetime. Besides that, in terms of the liquid and solid insulating materials such as the mineral insulating oil in transformers, cross-linked polyethylene in cables and epoxy resin composites, they also have environmental issues that need to be urgently addressed. The development of eco-friendly insulation materials could sufficiently provide innovative solutions for the low-carbon and eco-friendly upgrading of the power equipment. To share the important achievements and advancements in the research of eco-friendly insulating materials and the development of power equipment, this session aims to facilitate communications and discussions for the innovation and development of the eco-friendly alternative materials and its application in power equipment

Topics of interest for this special session include, but are not limited to:

(1) Eco-friendly gas and its application in high-voltage switchgear, GIS, GIL, etc.
(2) Advances in vacuum switching technology.
(3) Eco-friendly insulating oil and its application in power transformers.
(4) Eco-friendly insulating materials in high voltage cables.
(5) Recyclable epoxy resin materials and its application in high-voltage equipment.
(6) Design and manufacturing of eco-friendly high voltage power equipment.
(7) Condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of eco-friendly high voltage power equipment.
(8) Other eco-friendly dielectric materials and their applications.
