IFA2 is a proposed high voltage direct current (HVDC) electrical interconnector linking the British and French transmission systems that will be capable of exporting or importing 1000MW of power between the two countries. It will be the second link to France following the commissioning of IFA in 1986. The project is being jointly developed by National Grid and Reseau de Transport d’Electricite (RTE), the French network owner and operator. It is proposed to be sited on the airfield.
