National Grid Infrastructure Updates

Where is this happening?

The way we generate electricity in the UK is changing rapidly, and we are transitioning to cheaper, cleaner and more secure forms of renewable energy such as new offshore windfarms.

We need to make changes to the network of overhead lines, pylons, cables and other infrastructure that transports electricity around the country, so that everyone has access to clean electricity from these new renewable sources.
