Energinet.dk Electricity executive vice president Torben Glar Nielsen said: "Both Great Britain and Denmark are planning for integration of future very high amounts of wind power. Therefore, the study will also look at how the new cable would help both countries export and import renewable power, as well as connecting into a future North Sea 'super grid' to connect offshore wind power."
The UK currently has three operational cable interconnectors with Ireland, France and the Netherlands, and there are projects looking at connections with Norway and Belgium and increasing capacity with France and Ireland.
It also recently confirmed the construction of an IVDC link between England and Scotland that will run under the Irish Sea.
Denmark has interconnectors with Norway, Sweden and Germany, is currently building a new link with Norway and is investigating the possibility of establishing an interconnection with the Netherlands.
