We’re bringing forward £27.8 million worth of new electricity capacity to support green energy, housing and transport projects in England and Wales.
We’ve worked with Ofgem, the Energy Networks Association (ENA) and stakeholders in our communities to identify shovel-ready projects across our SP Manweb electricity distribution licence area. This Green Recovery Investment will support our economic recovery from Covid-19 and transition to net zero.
We are releasing 650MW of additional electricity capacity to support the adoption of low carbon technologies across North Wales and North West England.
This includes new substations and upgrades to existing assets that will enable connection of around 300 rapid or ultra-rapid electric vehicle charging points and 3,000 electric heat pumps.
It will also create the network resilience needed to support low carbon development and growth plans at major urban regeneration schemes across the North West.
These projects were selected because they can be delivered at speed and will help our regional partners and communities to take important steps forward on their journey to net zero.
The UK Government has set ambitious decarbonisation targets for Net Zero by 2050 and Green Recovery Investment is a crucial part of our work to prepare the grid for the increase in demand from an all-electric economy.
All projects will be delivered by spring 2023.
