That will be a shame.

I think it won't be timelapse worthy.
At least I hope not.

Not to forget the grid that has to be upgraded too.

I expect it will,  but Ive seems reports from the UK national grid saying that they could manage it.

We have big issues with our grid since the whole renewable energy thing got up to speed.

We have a lot more cars here than the Netherlands so perhaps it will be more of an issue than they let on.   32m cars here.

The real issue (at least here) is the peak in power production when there is a lot of sunlight or wind.
The grid was never designed for these kind of flows.

The uk just finished laying a power cable to Norway, talk about a long extension lead.

That is another issue indeed.
We are relying more on unreliable energy sources (wind / solar) that in some cases there is too little power on the grid.....
Still a lot to learn.

I thinks that’s what’s triggered the need to install cables like this. We have a few into France as well.  I think they are also hoping if exporting power on days when we have excess generation.

I was chuffed by that.  At first I was a little cautious it was a scam, but I looked up the person who had contacted me (via this forum) on linkedin and it all checked out.
