About National Grid

Investing for growth

We’ve announced plans to invest around £60 billion across the next five years – a near doubling in investment compared to the prior period.

This significant scale of investment in our energy networks will unlock economic growth and enable the increasingly digital, electrified and decarbonised economies of the future. By the end of the decade, National Grid will support more than 60,000 more jobs in the UK and northeast US.

To finance this unprecedented scale of investment and growth, we have announced a comprehensive financing plan, including a £7 billion fully-underwritten rights issue.

Behind the Grid: a look inside our electricity systems

Our lives are powered by electricity; it lets us talk to friends, listen to music, travel to work, cook our meals and so much more. When we flick a switch, the electricity is just… there. But do you ever wonder how that happens? In our video series ‘Behind the Grid’ we take you behind the scenes of the UK’s electricity system to discover how it all works, from where the electricity is generated right up to where it’s used.

What happens when the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining?

To achieve net zero carbon emissions, more of our electricity needs to be generated from renewable energy sources – two of the most popular being wind power and solar power.

Because energy generation from these sources can be intermittent, we receive a lot of questions about where clean electricity will come from when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.

Why is net zero so important?

The global race to remove greenhouse gases from our atmosphere is on, and the stakes could not be higher. Find out why reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050 is so critical.

What is renewable energy storage?

Storing renewable energy plays an increasingly important part in reaching net zero carbon emissions. Find out about the various technologies used for renewable energy storage.

Wind turbine in the sea seen from above - for National Grid's multi-purpose interconnector (MPI) story

What are multi-purpose interconnectors?

Multi-purpose interconnectors (MPIs) are subsea electricity cables that connect the UK’s electricity system to those of neighbouring countries and also connect offshore power generators – such as wind farms – to the shore.

What is a T-pylon?

The T-pylon is the first new design for UK electricity pylons in nearly 100 years and is a potential technology choice for future electricity transmission network projects, alongside the continued use of traditional lattice pylons.

Why invest in National Grid?

National Grid is one of the world’s largest publicly listed utilities focused on transmission and distribution of electricity and gas. We play a vital role in connecting millions of people to the energy they use safely, reliably and efficiently.

We aim to be a low-risk business that generates shareholder value through dividends and asset/equity growth.
