National Grid, Anbaric plan to deliver more green power to region; Green Line Infrastructure Alliance announced

Two organizations in the energy market are combining efforts to deliver clean and reliable energy to New England.

National Grid, one of the world’s largest electric and gas transmission companies, and Anbaric, a high-voltage transmission developer, announced the formation of a Green Line Infrastructure Alliance today. The two plan to deliver onshore wind and hydropower to the region.

The companies are trying to develop large-scale, high-voltage direct-current transmission projects that combine wind and hydropower, to address regional energy issues such as rising prices, declining fuel diversity, and the need for more renewable energy.

One western Massachusetts resident 22News spoke with said that it’s the results he’s interested in.

“I’ll see it when I’ll believe it,” Roger Sarwal of Westfield said. “The infrastructure is going down. They have to invest, that’s the key thing. They have to invest.”

Green Line Infrastructure Alliance initially will develop the Maine Green Line – a hybrid land-and-sea project that will initially transmit 1,000MW of wind power from northern Maine, firmed up by imports of hydropower from eastern Canada, via a submarine cable to Massachusetts.

In the coming weeks, the companies will begin meeting with key stakeholders to discuss their commitment to combined wind and hydropower as a way to meet regional energy needs, and to develop more detailed project plans.
