IFA2 Interconnector

Commissioned in 2020, IFA2 is the second link to France that National Grid has developed with RTE.

Our interconnectors deliver secure and affordable electricity and play a critical role in tomorrow’s cleaner and smarter energy systems. We sell the capacity to energy traders and provide services to transmission system operators in the UK and France.
