Wind power super-grid plans
Jul 7, 2008 - The Press Association
Ireland could form part of an electricity super-grid on
the western fringes of Europe supplying offshore wind power
to millions of homes.
Funding has been put in place to study how the state could
link up with Northern Ireland and Scotland to provide renewable
energy to the rest of Europe, and sell off surplus power.
Ultimately the network could spread across the North Sea
to Norwegian wind farms creating the super-grid.
Eamon Ryan, Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural
Resources met Scottish Energy Minister Jim Mather in Glasgow
to discuss plans to develop electricity connections.
