Mission Statement

Friends of the Supergrid advocates for an efficient, interconnected and resilient electricity grid to complement existing national transmission infrastructure. The Supergrid will secure the supply of a sustainable energy mix for Europe.

What is the Supergrid?

The Supergrid is defined as “a pan-European transmission network facilitating the integration of large-scale renewable energy and the balancing and transportation of electricity with the aim of improving the European market”.
The Supergrid is a key enabler for a secure, cost-effective and sustainable power system.


To facilitate the development of a pan-European Supergrid that allows the transportation of power over long distances, many different aspects of the European energy policy are involved. At FOSG, we are constantly monitoring and analysing the energy policy evolutions at European and regional level and anticipating the future developments that will help facilitating the Supergrid.
