Green energy grids

Working with Ofgem, Energy Networks Association (ENA) members have drawn up plans to unlock early investment (up to £300m) in the grid to support the future technologies driving green jobs and growth in the UK.

ENA called on local authorities, developers and other parties to state the case for why their locality should be selected for investment. There is a particular interest in locations where investment can be made quickly to support shovel-ready developments that underpin the transition to a net-zero carbon emissions economy, in line with government targets.

Jonathan Brearley, Chief Executive of Ofgem, said: “We cannot afford to delay in building a clean energy infrastructure that will help to power our transport and heat our homes emissions-free. We’re urging electricity network companies to come forward with fresh new sites for green investment to help kick-start the green recovery.”
