A paper by National GridInterconnectors The opportunity fromgreater electricityinterconnection.
By linking to other countries' transmission systems, National Grid can increase the diversity and security of energy supplies, facilitate competition in the European market and help the transition to a low carbon energy sector by integrating renewable sources.
National Grid's transmission system, covering England and Wales, is linked by interconnectors to the transmission systems of France and The Netherlands. In addition to jointly owning and operating the England-France and England-Netherlands interconnectors, we are developing proposals on a number of other interconnector projects.
