Denmark to decide on UK subsea electricity cable

Denmark is to decide on a subsea electricity cable that would link the country to the UK. The power cable connecting the two countries would increase energy trading and integrate energy resulted from wind power.

"Building a first power link to the UK looks interesting, though our calculations and analyzes are not yet complete," said Dorthe Vinther, head of planning at Danish grid operator in mid-November. 

However, the advantages of building such a facility have been underlined by the Danish side."The northern German grid faces huge bottlenecks, so a cable to the UK is the obvious solution for Denmark, to avoid putting all our eggs in one basket," Ulrich Bang, director of EU affairs at the Danish Energy Association said.
