UK makes green energy link with Norway


National Grid and Statnett have revealed plans to build the world's longest undersea interconnector between Britain and Norway, a 450-mile link that be able to provide enough low-carbon energy for almost 750,000 UK households. The €2bn project will create a two-way interconnector between Blyth in Northumberland and Kvilldal in Rogaland that will be able to provide renewable power when a lack of wind prevents wind turbines from generating electricity. A coalition of energy companies announced plans in 2011 to build an electricity interconnector between Norway and Scotland. The proposed 350-mile cable is planned for completion by 2020 at a cost of £1.75bn. SSE, the British energy supplier, pulled out of the project in 2013.
