When do you expect the grid to be discussed seriously by world leaders?

Key Words:

grid, world leaders, energy ministers, Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, continents, regions


It already is being discussed seriously by energy ministers on 5 continents (Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia). In the early 1990s, there were 50 nations that traded electricity across borders. Today there are 100 nations with bilateral interconnections.

This is exceptional growth, when you consider the requirements of international links: cooperative engineering, international finance, treaties signed, and then construction. Yet the grids of 100 nations remain isolated.

Many projects which have been planned for a decade are now progressing: the Central American link (SIEPAC), the Gulf States Cooperation Council (Middle East), the ASEAN network of SE Asia, and the South African Development Council (SADC).
