The role of interconnectors: advancing energy transition and energy security

Interconnectors play a more crucial role than ever. They support the energy transition and energy security.

As a physical electricity cable or gas pipeline connecting energy networks across different countries, their purpose is to transport electricity or gas produced or obtained in one country to another, based on demand and supply requirements.
