This book sets out to uncover the origins of the idea of a European electricity network. It explores historically the roots of a transnational European system, showing how engineers came to think in terms of "Europe" already in the 1920s, and how this ideas continued to influence network-building in later decades.\r\nCovering the period between 1918 and 2001, the book provides a detailed analysis of ideas on, and the building of, an European electricity system
