Foundations laid for new state-of-the-art power link between Great Britain and France - ElecLink & Groupe Eurotunnel Unveiling Plaque - March 22, 2017

A new major energy project was unveiled in Folkestone U.K. at the end of February this year between Groupe Eurotunnel and Eleclink. It connects the electricity supply of the U.K. with the rest of Europe in order to create a competitive market for renewable energy sources in Europe and includes the creation of a one Gigawatt direct current interconnector. It will aid in the securing of affordable energy with minimal environmental impact as it will be run through the Euro Tunnel.

In a press release Jesse Norman MP spoke of the project: “'As a Government, we are strongly supportive of greater electricity trading with our European partners in order to lower household bills and deliver energy security as part of our modern industrial strategy. We've created the right environment for cooperative projects like ElecLink to attract investment and compete in the market without needing financial support from our tax and bill payers.”
