UK-based investment firm Octopus Energy has signed an agreement with British developer Xlinks to develop a 10.5 GW wind-solar project in Morocco and a submarine cable to connect the facility with the UK power system. “Xlinks will speed up the UK’s transition to net zero by laying four 3,800km-long subsea cables to connect a huge renewable energy farm in the Moroccan desert with Devon in South West England,” Octopus Energy said. “The site will supply 3.6 GW of reliable, clean power to the UK for an average of 20 hours a day, enough green energy to power about 7 million heat pumps all year round.” The Xlinks project is expected to sell power at GBP 48 ($59.7)/MWh.
