Home / News and Insights / Press / Aquind interconnector: What happened and what’s next?

On January 24 2023, the High Court issued its decision on a challenge by Aquind against the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, refusing its application to build the UK side of an electricity interconnector from France to the UK.

In an article for Electrical Review, partner Angus Walker looks at the background of the Aquind interconnector application, as well as the judgement and infrastructure delays that are likely to ensue.

Policies also need to keep up with factors like the urgency of net zero, and so allow the consenting of projects before the need case is watertight; electrical connections are a case in point – we can’t take years building generation and only then get round to connecting it.

The full article is available to read on the Electrical Review website.
