National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) is vital to delivering the transition to a clean, fair, and affordable energy future.
Our ambition is to ensure the effective and efficient connection of low-carbon technologies at pace to deliver net zero, whilst driving value for end consumers.
Over recent years, we have witnessed significant and rapid change in the energy landscape, including the type and volume of developments wanting to connect to the transmission network.
These changes in the industry have brought challenges, notably a hugely oversubscribed pipeline of customers wanting to connect to the network, resulting in increasing timescales being offered for connections.
There is a collaborative effort across industry to address the connections challenge, of which we have been supporting the ESO in the delivery of their 5-point plan to accelerate connections and development of a new connections process. The ESO's latest process recommendations have now been published here. We have also been working closely with the ENA as part of their 3-point plan to improve connections for distribution customers.
