On Thursday, Danish Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities Dan Jørgensen formally signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with his Belgian counterpart, Federal Minister of Energy Tinne Van der Straten, to more closely examine the possibility of installing a cable connection between the two countries. Such an interconnector might swing by the North Sea energy island agreed to in Danish parliament on the same day.
One crucial prerequisite for this energy isle is that Denmark not be alone in the endeavor. Although Jørgensen spoke of a "historically large construction project", the island itself makes up quite a small part of the story. Significantly smaller than the somewhat less imposing cables that will enable electricity to supply other locations than the facility's lunchroom.
