A power cable between UK and Denmark to share renewable energy is being mooted by the countries’ grid operators.
A study, to be published later this year looking at the proposal, has been jointly examined by The National Grid and Energinet.dk of Denmark, with the aim to create an offshore wind power grid across the North Sea.
Torben Glar Nielsen, executive vice president of Energinet.dk’s electricity division, said: “Both Great Britain and Denmark are planning for integration of future very high amounts of wind power.
“Therefore, the study will also look at how the new cable would help both countries export and import renewable power.”
The agreement would allow the UK and Denmark to provide regions that are lacking power with energy created by those that possess surplus amounts.
