Brexit Blackout: Britain’s energy security will be put at risk by huge tariffs on electricity imported from Europe

BREXIT BRITAIN’s energy security will be put at risk because of plans to rely on a huge increase in electricity imports from Europe to keep the lights on – analysts claim.

In a report seen by The Sun, Ministers are panned for failing to build enough power stations and instead hoping electricity will flow through a new generation of “interconnectors” physically linking the UK to the Continent.

Analysts at consultancy Aurora claim the Government expects four times as much electricity to come through these connections in 2024 than today.
