About fifteen departments are still in yellow vigilance. More than 250,000 homes are deprived of electricity and trains traffic is disrupted in the north of France, mainly in Normandy, because of the violent winds that swept the country on Wednesday night to Thursday.

With a "current motorway" under water, Germany and the United Kingdom want to trade and replace simple electricity. The 720-kilometer subuse power cable «NewConnect» should connect from 2026 to Wilhelmshaven with the HOO peninsula at the Thames mouth.

With a "electric motorway" under water, Germany and the United Kingdom want to act and replace simple electricity.

The so-called interconnector can transport up to 1.4 gigawatts of electricity in both directions - that's enough energy for around 1.5 million households. Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke at her farewell visit to the United Kingdom at the beginning of July with Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the project.

Energy Prices: EU Ministers Discuss Long-term measures

 Energy Prices: EU Ministers Discuss Long-term measures The EU-State energy ministers advise against a special meeting in Luxembourg on measures against dramatically increased energy prices. © Carsten Koall / DPA Germany and eight other countries spoke against reforms of energy markets. The topic has already been discussed at the EU Summit last week and is the only point on the agenda. Among other things, the ministers want to discuss proposals for long-term funds against the price fluctuations.

«NewConnect can offer significant national and energy benefits from the point of view of the Federal Government," the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Berlin announced upon request. Thus, the project offers opportunities to relieve the German transmission system, reduce costs and integrate renewable energies across border. Although "NewConnect" belongs to the Federal Duty Plan, however, the Federal Government does not participate financially.

also the British government supporting the project does not pay any money for the 1.4 billion pound (1.66 billion euros) expensive cables. The costs for the currently largest German-British individual project assumes an investor consortium. "NewConnect will help us to ensure that renewable energies are not wasted," it said from the Ministry of Economic Affairs in London. Only recently, Great Britain with Norway had commissioned the world's longest low sea electric cable worldwide. There is already an interconnector through the North Sea between Germany and the Scandinavian country: "Nordlink" allows access to German wind stream and the other direction to electricity from Norwegian hydroelectric power plants.

The British hope the connection, above all at lower consumer costs. The price for electricity is currently permanently higher than in Germany. So far, the country is a stream importer, 2020 5.4 percent of electricity needs were covered from abroad. The country already operates several interconnectors, such as France, Ireland or the Netherlands. More are planned. Germany in turn, "NewConnect" can make excess electricity. «The first connection of two the largest European energy markets will lead to a more resilient and more sustainable power supply in Germany and the United Kingdom," said it was from NewConnect Deutschland GmbH.

Prime Minister Johnson wants to significantly advance green energies and form the UK by 2040 for the "Saudi Arabia of Wind power". The capacity should quadruple from 10 gigawatts 2019 to 2030. Thus, the United Kingdom wants to become the electricity exporter, as the Federal Issue Society Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI) writes in an analysis.

So far, however, Great Britain is dependent on electricity imports. This also uses France in the dispute over fishing rights in the English Channel and threatens to suspend the deliveries to the channel island of Jersey. In any case, the interconnector with France is currently not working full capacity after a fire in a British power distribution center. That had dramatically increased the pressure on electricity prices in the United Kingdom.
