Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
High Voltage Direct Current lines (HDVC) do the transportation with surprisingly little loss compared with AC lines.

There's still the material / capital cost of building and maintaining those lines, however.

And that's exactly where the stimulus from the printing of Eurobond money could come into play.  Or better still some asset-based energy currency which includes the grid assets.
