THE APPROACH TO CLIMATE CHANGE NEEDS TO BE LOCAL AS WELL AS NATIONAL
The decarbonised energy future is as much local as it is national. Our cities, towns and communities need to be on the front-line of fighting climate change.
Energy networks are part of the fabric of every region in the country – they are regional companies playing a national role. Network companies are already working with communities and local governments to tackle climate change – and we want to explore new ways to work more closely.
To deliver deeper levels of decarbonisation we will need to make our local energy grids more capable to connect more renewable energy – we are already undertaking that work.
This will help create new smart energy markets for households, businesses and communities.
