‘Decarbonisation starts at home’: Northern Powergrid on delivering a net zero network: Flexible electricity use and network operation will be the most cost-efficient route to achieve net zero for the region and for all our customers, and we are championing a ‘flexibility first’ approach to managing and developing the network. Practically, a flexible approach could involve customers being paid by us to change when they use electricity. It also means we will use more innovative network solutions to operate a more active grid. By capturing and harnessing increasing quantities of valuable data to make these solutions a reality, and using both customer flexibility and smart solutions, we can reduce the need for traditional network reinforcement.
