Yorkshire GREEN

Yorkshire GREEN

Welcome to the National Grid Yorkshire Green Energy Enablement (GREEN) project website.

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. 

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.

Upcoming Yorkshire GREEN consultation events

We’re running a number of webinars and telephone drop-ins during our consultation period where you can learn more about our proposals for Yorkshire GREEN. 

These sessions will provide an opportunity to meet the Yorkshire GREEN Project team, view our early proposals and for us to tell you more about the Project’s role in helping the UK achieve Net Zero. There will also be a chance for you to submit questions during these  sessions.

To register for a webinar, which will be held using the online platform Livestorm, please follow the weblinks provided within the table, email ([email protected]) or Freephone (0800 029 4359). 

To sign-up for a telephone drop-in, where you will be allocated a time to speak with members of the Project team, please telephone or email with your chosen day and time preference. Once you have registered your interest, dial-in details will be shared.
