The South West Link is an important part in the necessary development of the national grid, required to enable the production of renewable energy as planned in accordance with Sweden’s and the EU’s energy policy objectives. The connection contributes in limiting the differences in electricity prices that can occur between different electricity areas in Sweden.
The South West Link consists partly of a new AC (Alternating Current) link between Barkeryd and Hallsberg, and partly of a DC (Direct Current) link between Barkeryd and Skåne. Commissioning of the north branch is planned for the beginning of 2015. Full commissioning of the south branch is planned for the beginning of 2016.
