A 6GW set of subsea cables linking North America and Western Europe 

Our Vision – Our Mission

Our vision is to catalyse a new era of energy connectivity and cooperation for the benefit of present and future generations in North America and Europe.

Our mission is to design, develop, and implement cutting-edge electricity interconnection infrastructure between North America and Europe, empowering communities, driving economic growth, and mitigating climate change impacts and energy security concerns.



North Atlantic Transmission One - Link

The North Atlantic Transmission One - Link is the most ambitious and beautiful infrastructure project in the world… and yet the most useful and practical.

NATO-L will connect North America to Western Europe via Eastern Canada and UK & Ireland through a 6GW HVDC set of subsea cables.

The length of the cables is 3,500 kms or 2,200 miles.

The link will be carrying only green electrons, between allies, strong load demands zones, active financial markets, and developed economies..

Connecting America and Europe
It is time to claim back our Clean Energy Sovereignty.
The history and now

We have built links across the North Atlantic for centuries!

In 1866, the British ship Great Eastern succeeded in laying the first permanent telegraph line across the Atlantic Ocean.

In 1956, the first transatlantic cable TAT-1 was laid between Canada and Scotland.

Those links are bonding allied nations.

Today, several power interconnectors around the world are tackling similar long distances making those links a secure and cost-effective source of 24/7 carbon-free power.

The benefits

Interconnectors are built on mutual trust

With the electrification of the transportation and the heating sector well under way, western democracies are in need of green, reliable and secure new sources of carbon free electricity.

An interconnector is built on mutual trust. It links two big load centres and brings benefits to both sides, while reinforcing the two grids.

North America

For North America, NATO-L is the opportunity to develop the extraordinary green potential of the Northeastern corner of the American Continent with hydro and wind.


For UK & Europe, it is another step to increase diversification and security of supply with 24/7 carbon free power.


For NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation), is a way to build a physical link between its two blocks, strengthening Energy Security amongst its members in a time when energy is being weaponized by hostile regimes.

Optimised for demand and resources

East – West interconnectors are of a particular value - they harness the rotation of the Earth around the Sun.

The renewable resources like wind and solar on each side of the ocean are not correlated, allowing the link to become a virtual 24/7 baseload carbon-free corridor.

Solar in Europe can power North America’s breakfast and five hours later reverse flow to power Europe’s evening demand peak.

The Path

NATO-L: from vision to reality.

The project will take 10-15 years to develop. Significant hurdles need to be cleared. We don’t believe that short term capital can be reasonably deployed at this stage.

The next three years will be dedicated to shape the project, gathers all talents, and obtain the support of all stakeholders (political, regulatory, technical, industrial, and financial).

Because it’s a collective and multi-generational endeavour of people, nations, and institutions for the benefits of all, the journey will start with a foundation, gathering all major stakeholders.


The goals of the foundation are to:

Establish a consensus around the project
