Helping to enable a greener future.

About us

UK Power Networks is the UK’s biggest electricity distributor delivering power to 8.3 million homes and businesses across London, the east and south east of England. We keep the lights on across 29,250 square kilometres, serving 19 million people from Cromer in the east to Brighton on the south coast. The nature of our business means we are responsible for keeping the lights on, safely and sustainably, and caring for our customers in the most vulnerable circumstances across our communities.

“Net Zero is not optional, it needs to be delivered. As a company, our first role is to transform our operations to be net zero, and our second role is about how we facilitate the decarbonisation of the UK economy. We will be employing innovative new techniques to ensure we walk the talk.”

UK Power Networks Green action plan

UK Power Networks launched its Green Action Plan in 2019, addressing areas where it impacts on the environment. The Green Action Plan has defined clear objectives with deadlines to help play its part in handing on a sustainable planet to future generations. The new Green Action Plan gives a framework to its ambitions to reduce waste, water usage, carbon emissions, and air and noise pollution while increasing the biodiversity at many substation sites. It will be an evolving document that will be further developed over time with new more challenging targets developed as UK Power Networks meets earlier targets.
