GreenTech media | Europe’s Latest Supergrid Plan Could Slash Offshore Wind Transmission Costs

Despite years of lobbying, a European supergrid remains a far-off prospect. And Daniel Atzori, a research partner at the energy consultancy Cornwall Insight, said the SuperNode idea might also be hard to get off the ground.

The advantages of the SuperNode are that it adopts a holistic, pan-European and collective approach to the electrification of the continent.

The benefits of a SuperNode network would be akin to those claimed for energy islands, which are already being planned by European grid operators such as TenneT and Energinet, but could extend across all of Europe, Atzori said.
