National Grid plc is made up of three distinct businesses:

  • Our UK core regulated business includes the electricity and gas system operators for Great Britain. It also includes the electricity transmission owner and maintainer for England and Wales, and the gas transmission owner and maintainer for Great Britain.

Why have we created National Grid Ventures?

We’re experiencing rapid and unprecedented changes in the energy industry, driven by emerging global trends:  decarbonization, decentralization and digitization.

To ensure we continue to deliver for our customers and shareholders, National Grid has established National Grid Ventures to:

  • optimize the performance of energy assets that sit outside of its core regulated businesses
  • identify new opportunities for growth
  • position itself ahead of global trends
  • act as a catalyst to innovation that delivers real benefits to energy customers
How will National Grid Ventures benefit energy customers?

NGV already delivers competitive energy products and services to primarily business-to-business customers. As the energy landscape evolves, NGV is also focused on developing businesses that deliver flexible, reliable and innovative solutions to meet the changing demands of more connected customers.

We’ll create value for our customers (and investors) by anticipating what customers want, reducing the costs of energy delivery today and pioneering the flexible energy systems of tomorrow.
