Look East: Forging Closer Ties With Our Nordic Neighbours

Take energy. The North Sea has been a common source of energy for us and the Norwegians for at least a generation. Now, together with the Danes and the Swedes, it’s a shared home for the next generation of renewable energy. The prospect of an interconnector between us and Norway would help us tap into not just their surplus energy, but link us to the whole of Scandinavia’s sources of low carbon power. If Iceland were to be connected, with its large surplus of low carbon energy, we could then free us all from dependence on oil and gas from the Middle East, and from Putin’s Russia.
