National Grid’s job is to connect people to the energy they use, safely. We are at the heart of one of the greatest challenges facing our society—delivering clean energy to support our world long into the future.
National Grid holds a vital position at the centre of the energy system. We join everything up. We own and manage the grids that connect the energy sources to the people that use it. We’re the largest utility in the UK, running systems that deliver gas and electricity across the entire country, connecting people to the energy they use. In the North East US, we provide power directly to millions of customers.
We all rely on having energy at our finger tips: our society is built on it. From the warmth and light we rely on at home, and the power which keeps our factories and offices going, to the mobile communications and other technologies that are essential parts of our modern lifestyle.
We’re investing around £30billion over the next 8 years to develop and renew the UK’s energy infrastructure, leading the way on renewable energy. There’s never been a more interesting and exciting time to join National Grid.
