Regional Forum - Northern Powergrid's Investment Plan Explained

20 Mar 2023

10:00am - 11:30am



In March we are holding our second quarterly regional forum, where we will be discussing our investment plan for Yorkshire, northern Lincolnshire and the North East with local government, businesses and major organisations.

This will cover Ofgem’s final determination on how much money we are able to spend on the electricity network across aspects such as asset and climate resilience over the next 5 years.

Where this is less than what we had asked for, it will outline how we plan to close these investment gaps. We will be seeking your views on our plans to make sure that we are prioritising investment in the areas most important to you.

The objectives of this session is for Northern Powergrid to 

  • Provide an update on the areas we have identified as your priorities in previous sessions
  • Provide an opportunity for an open forum to take your questions and learn about your priorities
  • As we mobilise our next five year business plan (ED2) which will be implemented from 1stApril, we would like to get your input how we prioritise our investment spending
