Connecting the power markets
in Ireland and Great Britain

Greenlink is a proposed 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.

CURRENT STATUS:

The project is now at an
advanced stage of development and preparations for the start of construction are under way.

The project requires planning permission in Ireland and Wales. For the latest on planning,
