In this article the author discusses an energy integration proposal by Softbank chief executive officer (CEO) Son Masayoshi called the Asian Super Grid. The proposal envisions a super grid that links the enhanced electric power systems of China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia and perhaps Russia. The Asian Super Grid is cited as one of the first projects of Masayoshi's Japan Renewable Energy Foundation (JREF). The idea behind the proposal covers linking wind farms in the Gobi desert via high-transmission lines to several Asian countries.
