Contribution to decarbonisation
Helping society to decarbonise is the biggest contribution we can make to the environment. On this page you can find out how we’re supporting the decarbonisation of electricity through a variety of programmes.
Our contribution to decarbonisation
The demand for sustainable energy is accelerating the pace of change within the energy industry.
We’re seeing huge developments in key technologies such as:
- solar energy
- offshore wind
- energy storage
- electric vehicles
- distributed generation.
The digitisation of energy networks from generators to households is further changing how everyone – generators, suppliers, distribution companies and consumers - engage with energy.
We face the challenge of adapting our networks to meet new demands and making sure we act on opportunities that will benefit our customers and stakeholders.
How we’re supporting the decarbonisation of energy
National Grid Electricity Transmission is actively supporting the decarbonisation of electricity by undertaking a range of programmes:
Our environmental performance - delivering a sustainable network
As we evolve in our role to support the decarbonisation of energy, we must also ensure we’re environmentally responsible in the way we operate our network. Find out how we’re performing across a range of activities that impact on the environment.
These include greenhouse gas emissions, treatment of resources, how we care for the natural environment, our approach to environmental management, and how we’re delivering responsible construction.
