National Grid is working to build a cleaner, fairer and more affordable energy system that serves everyone – powering our country’s homes, transport and industry into the future. We believe that with the right kind of infrastructure in place, the UK can become the world’s first major clean economy, achieving the Government’s Net Zero carbon emissions target by 2050, whilst creating growth and jobs for communities across Great Britain.
The Yorkshire GREEN project will play a pivotal role in helping the UK achieve net zero. As we become increasingly reliant on renewable power generation, including 40 GW of offshore wind by 2030 outlined in the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan, our proposals will ensure that the electricity grid will be ready to transmit clean energy to our communities.
We are currently in the very early stages of development for the Yorkshire GREEN project and we will continue to carefully consider the impacts of our proposals on local people and the environment as our plans progress. We will be consulting with local communities, landowners and organisations during spring 2021.
If you are a local landowner, or you have any queries with regard to the Yorkshire GREEN project, please contact our lands team, or by phoning 0845 437 7357, providing your details.
Over the coming months, and as we continue to develop the Yorkshire GREEN project, we will share further information about our plans on this website. To keep up to date on project related news, please sign up for updates. Alternatively, you can contact us by phone on 0800 029 4359.
