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

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

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.

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 ⬇️

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.

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

👩‍🔬 "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. #Valuable500

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! 🔌 🚗
