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, creating growth and jobs for communities across Great Britain.
National Grid is holding a public consultation on its proposals for the Yorkshire GREEN Project. The consultation will open on Thursday 11 March and will run for five weeks, until Thursday 15 April.
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 40GW 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.
