Britain surely is separating itself from Europe, but it has initiated to connect with Norway through a widening web of undersea cables which will tap the nation’s important power source to the continent fulfilling its aspirations of clean energy.
Recently, the longest and the strongest of all the cables has been laid down across the North Sea. The cable stretches 450 miles from a Hydroelectric plant based in the Rugged mountains of Norway to an industrial port in Northeast England called Blyth. There are twin cables, each about 5 inches in diameter. Its massiveness can carry enough power for almost 1.5 million homes.
This initiative will balance the power systems of the two nations and be advantageous in terms of fulfilling the differences between their resources. Britain would be able to tap into Norway’s hydropower, while Norway would be able to take advantage of surges of electricity from the Britain wind farms that would be wasted otherwise.
With the rapidly increasing demand for renewable energy sources, this endeavour would help spread the use of clean energy sources by both nations and also connect Britain to the continent in a productive manner.
