We own and operate the electricity transmission network in England and Wales, with day-to-day responsibility for balancing supply and demand. We also operate, but do not own, the Scottish networks. Our networks comprise approximately 7,200 kilometres (4,474 miles) of overhead line, 1,500 kilometres (932 miles) of underground cable and 342 substations. We own and operate the gas National Transmission System in Great Britain, with day-to-day responsibility for balancing supply and demand. Our network comprises approximately 7,660 kilometres (4,760 miles) of high-pressure pipe and 618 above-ground installations. As Great Britain’s System Operator (SO) we make sure gas and electricity is transported safely and efficiently from where it is produced to where it is consumed. In April 2019, the Electricity System Operator (ESO) became a new standalone business within National Grid, legally separate from all other parts of the National Grid Group. This will provide the right environment to deliver a balanced and impartial ESO that can realise real benefits for consumers as we transition to a more decentralised, decarbonised electricity system. Other UK activities mainly relate to businesses operating in competitive markets outside of our core regulated businesses; including interconnectors, gas metering activities and a liquefied natural gas (LNG) importation terminal – all of which are now part of National Grid Ventures. National Grid Property is responsible for the management, clean-up and disposal of surplus sites in the UK. Most of these are former gas works.

Economic Insight is a leading economics consultancy firm that provides an unrivalled level of client service. Its unique proposition is that the company combines the rigour of technical economics with the consultancy skills of leading strategy houses. It uses economics to provide its clients with a fresh perspective on the issues that matter most to them and to support superior decision making. As you would expect of a firm of specialist economists, the company’s advice is underpinned by rigorous economic, statistical and financial analysis. But it’s how the company uses its analysis that makes it different. Economic Insight’s focus is on translating it into clear and valuable advice for its clients. In the company’s opinion, that’s what makes economics relevant.
