Discover how we're changing the way we work to make a net zero future a reality for everyone.
On World Environment Day we joined the global Race to Zero campaign, which is encouraging a clean global plan to help us ‘recover better’ from COVID-19.
Work has begun on our latest interconnector, Viking Link, which will allow the exchange of electricity between Denmark and the UK. This 765km long undersea cable will further boost the amount of renewable energy in the UK – another significant step in our journey to net zero.
We’ve been recognised as one of Britain’s most climate change-focused large companies, but what specifically are we doing to help the UK towards its all-important net zero target?
With nearly 3,000 cars and vans, switching to low emissions vehicles is part of our commitment to reaching net zero by 2050. Here Fleet Manager Lorna McAtear explains how we’re stepping this journey up a gear and aiming for a fully clean-fuel fleet for 2030.
National Grid’s Ventures business is continuing its work, on both sides of the Atlantic, to accelerate our clean energy future. Catch up on some of the latest news from their US wind and solar projects here.
Gas Goes Green aims to speed up the switch from methane to hydrogen – key if we’re to reach UK net zero by 2050.
A new multi-partner project led by National Grid Electricity System Operator and Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks is exploring the potential to use electric heat demand in off-gas areas of Scotland to soak up surplus wind generation, rather than reduce wind farms’ output.
New petrol and diesel cars will no longer be sold in the UK from 2035, so before long, far more of us are going to be behind the wheel of electric vehicles (EVs).
