SP Energy Networks’ story
Across the UK, our energy distribution networks need to be reconfigured for transmitting fluctuating energies from different sources. For example, high-voltage lines have to be upgraded to transport renewable energy from more remote sources such as offshore wind farms to urban areas; medium- and low-voltage lines have to be strengthened to distribute additional energy flows from local sources such as solar panels installed in residential neighbourhoods.
The enabling infrastructure that SP Energy Networks is working on helps bring forward the connections to low carbon technologies that enable us to decarbonise our electricity supply and tap into more affordable and cleaner energy sources.
Useful learnings from SP Energy Networks
According to District General Manager, Tom Walsh, one of the most important and challenging activities on the journey towards sustainability is getting people on board: businesses, politicians and regulators. Proactive infrastructure investment is absolutely crucial and evolving the electricity network for a decarbonised future is something that cannot wait.
