Who is National Grid?

We are one of the world’s largest investor-owned energy companies, committed to delivering electricity and gas safely, reliably and efficiently to the customers and communities we serve.

We play a vital role in connecting millions of people to the energy they use, through our regulated utility businesses in the UK and US; with principal operations in electricity and gas transmission and distribution, as well as National Grid Ventures.

We also understand our responsibilities for future generations, so we’re shaping the energy systems that we’ll need in years to come. We’re working closely with customers, partners and communities to develop solutions to the very real challenges we all face as we make the transition to decarbonised, decentralised, smart energy systems.
