Working with the Netherlands to power both countries
Today Britain agreed a historic deal with the Netherlands to build the world’s largest multi-use electricity power line, boosting the UK’s energy supplies with enough to power 1.8 million homes and growing the economy.
- This deal will bolster our energy security and send a strong signal to Putin’s Russia that the days of his dominance over global power markets are well and truly over.
- Today’s historic deal with the Netherlands is the largest of its kind in the world. The new LionLink will connect the UK and the Netherlands with offshore wind farms providing enough energy to power 1.8 million homes, more homes than Manchester and Birmingham combined.
- This will fly the flag for British business and demonstrate Britain's world-leading expertise in cleaner, cheaper and secure renewable technologies - helping deliver on one of our five priorities to grow the economy.
