We’re taking action to achieve net zero and to deliver a clean, fair and affordable energy future. Strengthening and expanding our electricity grid is key to reaching our collective goals. Our infrastructure projects across Massachusetts and New York are helping to connect more renewables and enabling the electrification of heat and transportation across the Northeast.

The future of heat

The decarbonization of heat is one of the biggest challenges to achieving net zero in the Northeast region – the old and complex building stock will require a diverse set of solutions to decarbonize.

The [Big Grid Upgrade] will enable the electrification of heating for many and we’re transitioning to a 100% fossil-free gas network, using renewable natural gas and green hydrogen to serve customers who will still rely on our network for heating and industry.
