Greenlink is a proposed 500MW subsea and underground electricity interconnector linking the power markets in Ireland and Great Britain and planned for commissioning in 2023. As an EU Project of Common Interest (PCI), it is one of Europe’s most important energy infrastructure projects.
Greenlink brings significant benefits on both sides of the Irish Sea for employment, energy security and the integration of low carbon energy sources. For Ireland, it provides a natural link to EU and Nordic electricity markets via Great Britain.
The project is now at an advanced stage of development and is expected to receive full regulatory approval by early 2020.
The project will require planning permission in Ireland and Wales and we are consulting all key stakeholders for input into the development process.
