Energy UK responds to the announcement of the new LionLink power line between UK and Netherlands

Responding to the announcement of the new LionLink power line between UK and Netherlands, Emma Pinchbeck, Energy UK’s CEO said:
“Tapping the potential of the North Sea to generate and deliver clean energy is key to ensuring that we reach Net Zero in the quickest and cheapest way possible. The new LionLink interconnector will be a critical step in the journey to Net Zero, by bolstering the UK’s energy security and creating key export markets for homegrown energy sources. More interconnector capacity must go hand in hand with a relentless focus on rolling out the cheap low-carbon generation that will lower our emissions and energy bills.  
“The UK’s re-engagement with European partners on North Sea Energy Cooperation is a welcome development, and opens the door to creating a clean energy future that can benefit countries across the North Sea whilst tackling the shared challenge of climate change. We have a successful track record when it comes to key technologies such as offshore wind, and the UK’s energy industry is ready to play a crucial role in leading the development of the North Sea as a strategic resource for clean energy generation.”
