These are unprecedented, exciting times for the electricity sector. The UK has a clear commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and electricity networks are key to the fulfilment of this critical challenge. Our network is central to the viability of new technologies for our customers, such as electric vehicle charging, heat pumps, distributed generation and battery storage; we have ambitious plans for its future development and also our place in a net zero world.
Our property estate, land rights and landowner relationships are core foundations of our network and critical components for delivery of our projects. Meeting these demands and our customers’ expectations in a timely and cost effective manner whilst maintaining the security of our assets drives dynamic decision-making and solutions which optimally balance traditional, statutory principles and commercial expediency.
