The transition to an energy system built on renewables necessitates better utilisation of the energy. Today, power plants can produce when there is a demand. In the future, demand will have to follow production. This calls for common European electricity markets and strong interconnectors that can transport power from areas with high production and low demand to areas with low production and high demand.
COBRAcable and Kriegers Flak Common Grid Solution are both co-funded by the European Union for expanding the European market – coupling and allowing for a better utilisation of renewables. COBRAcable and Kriegers Flak allow for the transportation of renewable energy from Northern Europe to Central Europe. This way, renewable energy can be used when it is produced, even though production and consumption are not located near each other.
With strong interconnectors and efficient electricity markets, renewable energy can be produced in areas with an abundance of wind and transported to areas with high demand and thereby ensure a stable energy supply.
