Minsters meet to discuss future of offshore grid infrastructure
On Sunday 20 November the Scottish Government announced it will be meeting with Irish and Northern Irish ministers on 23 November to discuss issues raised in a major study on a future offshore grid infrastructure linking the countries. The meeting will take place alongside the Irish-Scottish Links on Energy Study conference that will look at the opportunities, challenges and barriers to developing an offshore infrastructure to deliver greater co-operation and energy trading between the countries. Last week energy minister Charles Hendry said that the UK and Ireland would benefit from greater interconnection and electricity exports. Scottish energy minister Fergus Ewing welcomed Hendry's comments by saying as reliance on renewable energy grows "cross border co-operation will only increase".
