Xlinks announced that Fabienne Serfaty has been appointed to its Board of Directors as Non-Executive Director, effective immediately.

“I am pleased to welcome Fabienne to the Board,”
said Sir Dave Lewis, Xlinks Executive Chairman. “I look forward to working alongside her on delivering our first of a kind project, unlocking the potential of remote renewable energy generation and enabling markets with high energy demand to diversify their energy supply.”

Fabienne has been a Trustee to several NGOs in the UK, including Clientearth Environmental Lawyers, Ashoka Social Entrepreneurs and the Fredericks Foundation. She is a frequent lecturer and speaker on the topics of sustainability, impact investment and social entrepreneurship.

“Xlinks is a huge opportunity to deliver real impact and benefit for generations to come,”
commented Ms. Serfaty. “The scale of the ambition ensures that we can deliver clean, reliable energy for a price that helps the UK consumer, at a time when increasing cost of living is impacting everyone.”

The Xlinks is currently developing its
Morocco-UK Power Project which is a multi-technology renewable energy project of approximately 10.5 GW of generation capacity. It is to be constructed in Morocco, with a combination of solar and wind generation assets coupled with energy storage, connected exclusively to the UK through dedicated 3,800km HVDC sub-sea cables with a combined capacity of 3.6GW at the receiving end.

The generation assets in Morocco will deliver energy to Britain for an average of 20+ hours a day. Xlinks anticipates it will provide up to 8% of Great Britain’s electricity needs.
