In yet another winning moment for clean energy advocates, the world's longest land and subsea cable, Viking Link electricity interconnector, announced the commencement of commercial operations. National Grid, who launched the UK’s first interconnector to France in 1986, has since built five more, including a second link with France.

The Viking Link, a collaborative effort between National Grid and Danish System Operator Energinet, marks a significant milestone in moving towards cleaner, more sustainable power solutions and boasts a substantial capacity of 1.4GW— enough electricity to power up to 2.5 million UK homes.
