The European supergrid plan will explore linking up green energy projects in the North, Baltic and Irish Seas and enable Europe to meet its green energy targets helping with the continent's energy security.

As per the supergrid plan, electricity may be transmitted from one country to another through sub-sea cables and wind farms built out at, could be connected to a number of countries.

Britain Prime Minister David Cameron backed the supergrid plan at the UK-Baltic-Nordic Summit held in London.

By working on the the North Seas Offshore Grid Initiative, the experience could be used for the Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (BEMIP) to address planning, market, regulatory and technical challenges and creating the right framework for future projects.

Britain energy secretary Chris Huhne said Europe’s future lies in green energy and Britain wants to work with other countries to make the most of the clean energy potential in and around the North Sea.

The UK is working inconcert with nine other European countries including Sweden, Germany, France and Belgium as part of the North Seas Offshore Grid Initiative, following an agreement signed in December 2010.
