Preparing our network for net zero

Preparing our network for net zero

To make sure the North West is ready for the net zero carbon future, we’re investing in the electricity network right now.

The UK is on the verge of a green industrial revolution. Driven by government net zero targets, our customers are adopting cleaner, greener ways to power their cars and heat their homes which could see demand for electricity double over the next 30 years.

To make sure our network can meet this extra demand and to adapt to the unparalleled changes we expect to see, we’re implementing plans now to ensure customers can continue to enjoy one of the most reliable electricity networks in the UK, at the lowest possible cost.

We’re doing this in a number of ways:

  • We’re increasing the capacity and flexibility of our network by investing in new substations and cables
  • We’re investing in digital technology, installing new monitoring and control systems to transform our network into a smart grid
  • We’re developing innovative solutions to deliver more efficient ways of working and make the best use of our existing assets.

By investing in our network now, we’re enabling our customers to make the switch to low carbon technologies like electric vehicles, safe in the knowledge that our network will be able to meet the extra demand and continue to provide a safe and reliable electricity supply.

We’re investing £25 million now to increase the capacity of our network and prepare for the net zero carbon future.
