Trump Blows Offshore Wind War Bigly To…Tiny Little Scotland?

So, what is Eastern Link? The news broke earlier this morning after the firm Scottish Power (for those of you keeping score at home, that’s under the Ibderola umbrella) let word slip that it is teaming up with the diversified energy corporations SSE and National Grid to build two 2-gigawatt undersea high voltage DC cables that will stretch from Peterhead and Torness in Scotland to Selby and Hawthorn Point in northeast England. The combined capacity of 4 gigawatts is expected to transform Scotland into the “hidden power house of Europe.

“The electric super-highway will play a vital role in achieving net zero as all three power firms were confirmed today as major partners of the UN’s COP26 climate change event to be held in Glasgow in 2021,” ScottishPower enthused, adding that “The cables will significantly increase the UK’s capacity for clean, green renewable power, enabling enough electricity for around four million homes.”
