Leading the North West to net zero
A key part of the UK’s journey to net zero carbon is the revolution of our electricity industry – the way electricity is generated, stored, transported and traded.
As the region’s network operator, it’s our responsibility to lead the way in this transformation. Through investment and innovation in energy infrastructure, we will help the North West to decarbonise and pave the way for the growth of renewable energy.
Our plan to lead the North West to net zero carbon sets out how we are investing £63.5 million between 2019/2023, to drive down our own carbon emissions and help businesses, our customers and our colleagues to do the same:
- We have become the first carbon literate distribution network operator in Great Britain
- We are developing a new losses strategy which will set out how carbon emissions from network losses can be reduced as far as practicably possible
- We are developing a new programme of initiatives to support carbon reduction activity in our communities
- We are enabling our customers to connect low carbon technologies to our network and ensuring we are facilitating the transition to a low carbon economy.
