Clean Wind Energy from Iceland to the UK
The KÁRI Project
The Kári Project aims to develop and install 2,000 MW off the southeastern or eastern coast of Iceland. The produced power would be transferred to the United Kingdom by power transmission cables and sold within the UK. The project is developed by Hecate Independent Power, a partnership corporation formed by Hecate Wind LLC and Independent Power Corporation PLC. The team has decades of experience developing grid-scale power projects across the globe.
Eastern Iceland has significant wind quality and weather systems in Iceland tend to be different than the UK. Therefore winds blow during different times.
25% of the UK’s electricity is provided by wind (2020). 10.4 gigawatts of offshore capacity is expected to double over the next 5 years
