National Grid operates at the heart of a rapidly transforming energy system. We deliver electricity and gas safely and reliably to millions of customers and communities in the UK and the Northeastern US. We are committed to a clean and fair energy future for everyone.
We also have a responsibility as a business to contribute to society more widely – whether that’s by helping the young people of today to become the energy problem-solvers of tomorrow, supporting our customers to use energy more efficiently or working with our communities to deliver clean and renewable energy today.
Tackling climate change and reaching net zero is at the top of our agenda. We are focused on finding ways to decarbonise the energy system – from building interconnectors to allow the UK to share clean energy with our neighbours in Europe, to investing in renewable energy generation in the US. We have also set our own commitments to achieve net zero by 2050.
We continue to work with partners across government, industry and society to maximise new and existing technologies as we intensify our efforts to reach a net zero. We are very excited to take part in COP27 in Egypt this year, and build on our partnership of COP26 in Glasgow.
Our vision is to be at the heart of a clean, fair and affordable energy future.
