Ofgem approves Scotland-Norway power cable

The developers plan to build a £1.3 billion power cable between Boddam in Aberdeenshire and Eidfjord in Norway. Scheduled to start operating from 2022, the project aims to link hydro power from Norway with wind energy from Scotland. WWF Scotland director Lang Banks said: “If the UK and the rest of Europe are to move to a 100% renewable future then greater use of interconnectors is a sensible way forward.” Sharing different renewable resources between nations would help drive down climate emissions much faster than relying on domestic action alone.
