Electricity utility Landsvirkjun has announced plans to build the world’s longest submarine high voltage direct current (HVDC) power cable, reaching up to 1,900 kilometers (1,181 miles), which could interconnect with the proposed European offshore “supergrid.” If completed, this could see renewable electricity flow across the continent, including geothermal from Iceland, wind from the North Sea and solar from southern Europe.
