Eleclink is a 1000MW HVDC electricity interconnector between France and Great Britain. ElecLink will support market integration, boost competition in energy markets, reinforce security of supply and will contribute in reducing CO2 emissions through increased renewable energy utilisation on both sides of the Channel.
ElecLink will run all its capacity auctions as explicit capacity auctions via the Joint Allocation Office (JAO) similar to other interconnector operators connecting to the GB market. ElecLink customers will bid for the capacity via JAO’s eCAT platform, where successful bidders will be able to nominate their obtained capacity on the ElecLink bespoke nomination platform Neptune.
