1,400 MW Power Line Connecting Germany and Norway

The German government bank KfW just announced that a contract has been signed to develop a 1,400 MW sea cable power line connecting Norway and Germany at a cost of about EUR1.5 to 2.0 billion. That cable will help stability of the grid and of prices by connecting the German solar and wind resources to Norway’s hydro capacity, including hydro storage.

The cable is supposed to be ready in 2018. It may be an interesting reference case for the Asia Super Grid concept.
