Will we ever see a USA-Europe transmission line?

As you might know, Microsoft and Facebook are going to build subsea cable across Atlantic, a 6,600 km submarine cable that is going to connect Virginia to Bilbao (project "Marea" ).

 

Do you think we will ever see a USA-Europe transmission line, to exchange energy and balance the respective grids?

With HVDC, I believe it is technically possible, but I wonder if the two parties would be interested in it, or policies, politics and costs will ever allow it.

What's your opinion?

 

Of course, it is a very long-term thought
