Northern Powergrid


Powering Green Recovery

Northern Powergrid has identified locations across the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire that would benefit from extra investment in the electricity network.   

This investment would be ‘ahead of need’ and intended to support green growth projects to come to fruition faster. It is part of a national Green Recovery Scheme to boost green growth, stimulate the economy and accelerate decarbonisation.

We identified 38 locations across our network that would benefit from accelerated network investment and sought feedback from stakeholders to inform and endorse our thinking.  We are now working with Ofgem to shortlist the potential investment sites.
