The Power of All

Coming together to make a global commitment to a cleaner planet.

Coming together to make a global commitment to a cleaner planet

National Grid is at the heart of the clean energy transition, delivering the energy that powers the lives of millions of people in the U.S. and U.K. Climate change is a global problem that requires a global solution.

As a Principal Partner of the UN Climate Change Conference in November 2021, it is our goal to bring people across the Northeast U.S. together to find common sense solutions to the challenges that face our society. If we are to secure a future free of the threat of climate change, we must all begin working together now.
 


The Power of All - US

What is the Power of All? 

History teaches us that when people come together and work towards a shared goal, what was once thought impossible can suddenly become reality. From landing on the moon to the creation of vaccines to tackle disease, the power of working together and the benefits it brings is something we can all believe in. While there is undoubtedly still lots to do, tackling climate change is possible. Here in the Northeast, we have already made great progress reducing greenhouse gas emissions more than any other region in the United States.

National Grid is driving this change through initiatives across the region and throughout the U.S., including:

  • Installing the first offshore wind farm near Rhode Island generating 30 MW of power
  • National Grid USA has connected more than 2,500MW of distributed generation in the last 5 years. 
  • National Grid Renewables-operated wind and solar projects are offsetting an estimated 1.3 million metric tons of CO2 annually.
