While some residents of the British Isles are experiencing the inconvenience of rising gas prices and problems with fuel at gas stations, the most important element of the future carbon-free ecosystem has earned — the underwater one,
The British-Norwegian joint venture National Grid #north sea link completed the construction in August
At the same time, let me remind you that this will be # a bilateral energy bridge. # Energy will come from Norway, produced mainly by local # hydroelectric power plants. But if necessary, and a surplus of wind generation in the UK, energy can already be supplied to Norway, thereby maintaining the water level in Norwegian reservoirs. That is, it is an absolutely mutually beneficial system.
North Sea Link said in a press release that the bridge will have enough energy to power the
North Sea Link emphasizes that the operation of the submarine cable will help reduce the use of fossil fuels in the UK, the equivalent of which is estimated at
This NSL project is the first of its kind in this part of Europe, but not the last. At least two more underwater power bridges are planned, which will bring renewable electricity from continental Europe and offshore wind farms to the UK.
While passions are raging in eastern Europe over pipes and gas flows, a new interconnected energy system is being built in the northwest. Yes, in the transition period to a decarbonized future there will be similar phenomena that are observed now at # gas stations in England, a fever in gas and coal prices. But as fossil-fuel generation is replaced by renewable, and gasoline transport by electric vehicles, everything will fall into place. Only gas and coal producers will have questions and problems.
