Our response to coronavirus

Find out how we're working to keep the electricity and gas flowing reliably throughout the outbreak.


The Yorkshire GREEN project is a proposal by National Grid Electricity Transmission to upgrade and carry out major reinforcement of the electricity transmission system in Yorkshire.

The Yorkshire GREEN project would provide the infrastructure needed to improve the transfer of sustainable power to support the Government’s commitment to quadruple the UK’s offshore wind capacity by 2030, tying into the clean growth forecast for Scotland and the North East of England. It would provide the capability to manage significantly increased power flows in Great Britain and growing energy demand, which the Climate Change Committee predicts will double by 2050.   

Your views are important to us

We are seeking your views as part of non-statutory consultation and the feedback we receive, together with information from surveys and other work we are conducting, will inform our design and shape the development of the proposals. 

The feedback we receive at both non-statutory (March 2021) and statutory consultation (in late 2021), where more detailed proposals and the findings from this initial stage of consultation will be presented, will form part of our application to the Planning Inspectorate. A Consultation Report, which will be publicly available, will set out how we have had regard to the consultation responses given. 

We are asking a series of questions on different aspects of our proposals. You are welcome to answer all or only some of the questions in this response form, depending on the issues that are most important to you. There is also an opportunity to comment generally on the project and this consultation.  

Please submit your response to this consultation, using the feedback form below, by Thursday 15 April 2021. We cannot guarantee that responses received after this time will be considered.  

Alternatively, you can download a print version of the Yorkshire GREEN feedback form. Please send this form to our Freepost address by writing Freepost YORKSHIRE GREEN CONSULTATION on an envelope. 

You can contact us on email ([email protected]) or by Freephone (0800 029 4359) and we will issue a form and a Freepost envelope in the post.
