The path to net zero requires everyone to act. We share that responsibility and recognise we have a key role to play in facilitating the low carbon transition. It is essential that we work with the communities we serve to address the climate emergency.
By working together, we can deliver better outcomes for all of our customers. Supporting the growth of community energy in our region will help us reach the most vulnerable in our society, as many community energy organisations are trusted intermediaries focussed on the environmental, social, and local economic impacts of our energy system.
Working with our communities, we want to be a proactive, trusted partner providing expert support and capacity building, whilst being a responsible, ethical business. We want to build positive relationships with community and local energy organisations that can benefit us all.
“It’s clear that Northern Powergrid is taking its role as an enabler of community energy seriously. The company is demonstrating its commitment to delivering meaningful environmental, social, and local economic benefits across Yorkshire and the North East and we look forward to working with them to make that happen.”
Emma Bridge, Chief Executive, Community Energy England.
