Element Power is proposing to develop the Maali interconnector between Shetland, UK and Norway using subsea cables connecting the Statnett and National Grid mainland networks.
The Maali interconnector will create a coordinated meshed network between Norway and the United Kingdom, via Shetland, an island with considerable renewable energy potential, proving benefits on both sides of the cable by:
- managing the supply and price of energy by being able to import more electricity at a lower price, when required;
- increasing security of supply;
- decarbonisation of electricity and energy;
- enabling greater generation and consumption of renewable energy in the UK and Norway thereby replacing fossil fuels.
