Europe needs an electricity network not a patchwork
Supergrid is the only affordable way to deliver Europe’s energy independence
Policymakers putting Europe’s leadership in low carbon grid at risk

Friends of the Supergrid

Driven by the three imperatives of combating climate change, providing affordable energy to consumers and ensuring security and independence of energy supplies, Europe is moving towards the creation of a single market in electricity. This market will bring low carbon electricity from supply sources in the North and South of Europe to the urban areas where most of us live and work.

There can be no transition without transmission. That new approach is Supergrid.

The Friends of the Supergrid is an Association promoting the policy agenda for a European Supergrid. We combine companies in sectors that will deliver the High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) infrastructure and related technology, together with others that will develop, install, own and operate that infrastructure.

The Supergrid is fundamental to a clean energy future for Europe and is the necessary and indispensable piece of technology in meeting the 2030 targets.

It is our responsibility, as Friends of the Supergrid, to make it happen.
