Figures from @beisgovuk show generation of wind power in the UK increased by 715% between 2009 and 2020.
According to @NationalGridUK, 2020 was the “greenest year on record” for Britain, with record high levels of wind energy generation http://ow.ly/tVoP50FavqZ
The next decade will be a time of rapid growth for #offshorewind. We're working on:
💨 More interconnectors with neighbouring countries to utilise excess #windenergy
💨 A new way to connect #windturbines with minimal disruption to coastal communities
Work to lay the cable for the world's longest electricity interconnector is now complete. 🔌
On windy days, #NorthSeaLink will share excess #windpower with Norway and on calm days the UK can import #hydropower. 🇳🇴🇬🇧
UK and Norway complete world’s longest subsea electricity cable https://on.ft.com/3wrXC9c
The #HinkleyConnection Project will eventually connect more than 6m homes and businesses to #lowcarbon energy. We’ve also been working with local communities to inspire young people through #STEM subjects and support teachers.
We've received a Silver Award in the @MindCharity Workplace Wellbeing Awards for promoting colleague #mentalhealth and our progress so far. #MindWorkplaceAwards
We’re excited to see more and more employers join the fight for better mental health at work. Find out more about all our Workplace Wellbeing Index Award winners and how to improve mental health in your workplace > https://bit.ly/3iqIGUQ
The 2021 Sustainability First Art and Writing Prizes are OPEN for ideas and visions of the social changes needed for a fair climate future - we're really looking forward to seeing your entries! @ClimateFringe
Today, @nationalgriduk joined #EV100 as the first major US utility to make a fleet commitment. By electrifying their 5,784 vehicle fleet, they're sending a strong signal that electric transport will be the new normal by 2030. Read more ⬇️
Schools across the UK can now download the @COP26 Schools Pack.
We worked with @SustainFirst to develop materials on #sustainability and #climateaction to inspire the next generation of climate leaders ➡️ https://bit.ly/3xaCbcL
📢 JUST LAUNCHED: #TogetherForOurPlanet Schools Pack
Our new Schools Pack will help schools across the UK engage their students on #ClimateAction ahead of #COP26 this November 🇬🇧
Transport makes up 23% of energy-related #carbonemissions globally and over 50% of new vehicles go into company fleets. By joining @ClimateGroup #EV100, we’re doing our part to integrate #EVs into our fleet and increase EV uptake within our workforce. https://ngrid.com/2TkA9be
A 128-tonne electricity transformer will be transported through Gateshead to @nationalgriduk Stella West Substation in Blaydon between 00:00 - 05:00 on Sunday 13 June. Find out more https://www.gateshead.gov.uk/article/18633/Abnormal-load-transported-through-Gateshead-this-weekend

👩🔬 "We need to overcome the deeply embedded barriers discouraging young girls and women from pursuing climate focused roles."
Alice Delahunty at @nationalgriduk argues we need to address the green skills gap by tackling gender imbalance ♀️
We’ve joined 499 businesses as part of the @Valuable500, which aims to accelerate #disabilityinclusion, putting the issue firmly on business agendas and providing a forum for CEOs to share ideas and best practice. https://ngrid.com/3wYCvvi #Valuable500
One of the ways we're driving change is by preparing for the transition to #electricvehicles. @nationalgridus has launched the #EV Road Trip in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island, making it easier to plan a summer road trip around EV charging points. #NGCleanGetAway
Ready to hit the road this summer? Whether you have an electric vehicle or you're looking for ways to travel more sustainably, join us on our EV Road Trip as we mindfully explore exciting destinations in the communities we serve & beyond! #NGCleanGetaway https://ngrid.com/3uHgXBK
Interconnectors act like sub-sea energy super-highways for #cleanenergy. By 2045, consumers could benefit from £20bn in energy savings resulting from the two-way exchange in #renewableenergy with Europe, in addition to increased energy security and flexibility.
The #ElectricInsights website now carries realtime and historical data for the new #IFA2 England-France interconnector.
📸⤵️ See how electricity imports from France started going above 2 gigawatts (GW) on 22nd January.
We love this video from Elga from @nationalgriduk - a perfect example of a befriending match benefitting the volunteer and the person they support. #VolunteersWeek #EmployeeVoluteering @EVMatters
Britain’s average #gasdemand in May was 20% lower than in April but the cool weather meant domestic gas usage was 20% higher than May 2020 and 2019. We transported 67bn kWh of #gas, enough energy to drive an electric car to the moon and back over half a million times! 🔌 🚗4
