Northern Powergrid


Powering Green Recovery

We are investing £53m to unlock network capacity for green growth-boosting projects across the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire. The multimillion-pound investment will accelerate green growth and job creation and is part of a national Green Recovery Scheme that saw up to £300m made available for investment in vital electricity network across the country.

The investment will help with the response to the climate emergency by creating additional network capacity to enable decarbonisation, regeneration and connection of large-scale renewable generation. It will boost economic activity to bring forward more green jobs and enable our region to be a leader in clean energy growth.
