The transmission cables of the future are likely to be HTS power cables rather than conventional cables.

Advantage of HTS power cable

A high-Tc superconducting power cable (HTS cable) will very substantially reduce transmission loss by up to 77% compared to conventional cables using copper or aluminum.

Decrease of 77%
YBCO tape YBCO is a crystalline chemical compound with the formula YBa2Cu3O7. This material, a renowned high-temperature superconductor, achieved prominence because it was the first material to achieve superconductivity above the boiling point of nitrogen.
