We move electricity round Great Britain’s system to keep homes and businesses supplied with the energy they need 24/7, 365 days a year.
National Grid ESO is the electricity system operator for Great Britain.
Our control room moves electricity around the country second by second to ensure that the right amount of electricity is where it’s needed, when it’s needed – always keeping supply and demand in perfect balance.
We also have to plan for the future.
We must think about things like where our energy will come from and how we will operate a greener and cleaner system in the future.
We want to be able to run a zero carbon electricity system by 2025, which will be crucial in helping the UK meet its wider zero carbon target.
