Channel Cable HVDC Interconnector is a major energy infrastructure initiative allowing the exchange of electricity between Great Britain and France. Approximately 130 kilometres in length and lying 90 meters beneath the English Channel, Channel Cable will enhance security of supply on both sides of the sea. Flexible hydro power and efficient nuclear from France and North West Europe will help to meet the peak demand in Great Britain, and facilitate trading of power between markets. This will lead to greater efficient use of existing generation resources.
