Electricity North West

http://www.enwl.co.uk/innovation

Electricity North West owns, operates and maintains the North West’s electricity distribution network, connecting 2.4 million properties, and more than 5 million people in the region to the National Grid.

Our network covers a diverse range of terrain, from isolated farms in rural areas such as Cumbria, to areas of heavy industry and urban populations including Manchester.

Part of our role as network operator is to plan for the future. To meet government carbon reduction targets we need to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels like gas and petrol and change to renewable sources. As a result the demand for electricity in the UK is expected to increase dramatically by 2050.

As well as meeting additional demand as we start to use more electric heat pumps and electric vehicles we also need to adapt so that low carbon generation sources such as wind and solar power can connect directly to our network.
