Together, the world is focussed on creating a greener future and as the UK moves towards its 2050 net zero target, National Grid ESO has a vital part to play.
It’s our ambition to be able to operate a zero carbon electricity system by 2025 so we’re also collaborating with global industry experts to facilitate a low carbon energy future.
Future energy scenarios
Our flagship publication, Future Energy Scenarios, outlines what the future of energy could look like and identifies credible scenarios for the next 30 years and beyond.
We also publish Bridging The Gap, a report that offers a collaborative industry view of what could happen in our quest for net zero and what needs to happen in order to get there.
