Abstract: The paper examines the main technologies used for the production of primary circuits for substations, average seasonal temperature fluctuations for primary circuits due to load and ambient factors variations correlated with the cost price and environmental impact in terms of space required for installation, CO2-equivalent emissions of equipment and other pollutants. An accurate assessment during the design stage, of environment risks and benefits of using a technical-economical solution can be a decisive factor in the strategy adopted to construct new substations or rehabilitate the existing ones.
Keywords: substation; greenhouse gases leakage; energy losses; environment pollution; CO2 equivalent emissions.
