It’s what we do...

Engineering and innovation are central to our organisation, forming the foundation of what we do, day in, day out – keeping the lights on and the gas flowing; making sure we provide value for customers and communities; and, shaping the energy systems of the future.

We’re at the heart of the energy industry in the UK and the north eastern US. Our people thrive on developing and implementing solutions that address some of the biggest challenges the energy industry is facing: the rapid shift to renewable sources of energy; increasing interconnectivity between countries; the development of smart energy networks; and, the electrification of transport.

We work closely with our partners and suppliers, always with a focus on the needs of our customers and the communities we serve.
