Ofgem, the British energy regulator, has approved plans for the investment of £95 million into grid developments by energy companies in the hope that it will give a boost to renewable energy exports from Scotland.
The proposal includes an £80 million package to increase the amount of electricity which can flow between the English and Scottish networks. Its aim is to support the exportation of electricity generated by wind farm developments in Scotland. Plans have also been approved for the overhaul of the Scottish network so that it may connect with generation plants in the North such as the Orkney Islands.
