The UK has a pipeline of interconnector projects that are expected to play a role in providing reliable, affordable, and clean energy.

Based on current project timelines and assuming all projects are able to complete, 3GW (3000MW) of new interconnector capacity are expected to be operational by 2020. A further 1.4GW is also currently under construction for delivery after 2020. There are a further 9.5GW of projects which have sought regulatory approval.
