National Grid confer on energy from Scotland to Yorkshire

National Grid confer on energy from Scotland to Yorkshire: National Grid will initiate a consult on a new energy project to transfer renewable energy from Scotland to Yorkshire to be held next Monday.

The Scotland to England Green Link 2 (SEGL2) will deliver renewable energy from Scotland by way of the North Sea to the south of Bridlington at Wilsthorpe, East Yorkshire.

The link will at that time run underground for about 65 kilometres & connect to the grid at Drax.

The project is anticipated to boost the transmission network & support the government’s goal for each home in the country to be powered by offshore wind by the close of the decade.

National Grid will be appling for planning permission next year and if approved, construction will begin 2 years after.

The work on the project is forecast to finish in 2029.

Neil Lyons, National Grid’s SEGL Project Director, stated: “Yorkshire’s coalfields once provided the energy that powered Britain and the area continues to be at the heart of the UK’s energy industry.

“With the development of SEGL2, the area will continue to play a crucial role, bringing cleaner, greener energy to Britain’s homes and businesses.”
