National Grid Nemo Link Limited applies for electricity interconnector licence

On 20th December 2012 National Grid Nemo Link Limited made an application to the Gas & Electricity Markets Authority (Ofgem) for an electricity interconnector licence.

Under the Electricity Act 1989, a licence is needed to participate in the operation of an electricity interconnector in Great Britain. An interconnector licence cannot be held in conjunction with any other electricity licence.

This is a key milestone in the project’s development.
