Now more than ever we need more renewable energy to make energy cleaner, more affordable, and more secure.
The North Sea offers an incredible opportunity for the UK and our European neighbours to deliver huge increases in offshore wind. But delivering new offshore wind will require more infrastructure, which will have an impact on communities.
The next generation interconnector
Interconnectors already provide a way to share electricity between countries safely and reliably. But what if they could do much more than that? What if interconnectors could become an offshore connection hub for green energy?
Instead of individual wind farms connecting one by one to the shore, Multi-Purpose Interconnectors will allow clusters of offshore wind farms to connect all in one go, plugging into the energy systems of neighbouring countries.
Tomorrow’s solution: Offshore wind and interconnectors in harmony
Today, offshore wind and interconnectors operate alongside each other, connecting to the shore individually. In the future, Multi-Purpose Interconnectors could enable offshore wind and interconnection to work together as a combined asset.
