The future of energy

With more than 80% of heat and power demand at peak times met by the gas network, we’re planning for the future - to make sure we can continue to deliver reliable energy at affordable costs for customers, whilst helping the UK meet our decarbonisation targets.


We’ve built a unique simulator that models future energy supply and demand – and its conclusions are clear. To make sure we have a secure supply of affordable and sustainable energy for future generations, we must continue to invest in and use the gas network.


Our underground gas network is safe, secure and resilient – whatever the weather, and as part of an integrated energy network, it can continue to power homes, businesses and industry long into the future.


The gas network can underpin the decarbonisation of electricity, acting as an ‘energy battery’ and supporting renewable electricity generation to help keep the lights on.


We’re reducing our own carbon emissions and can help meet the challenge of decarbonising transport - by working with partners to support the development of CNG filling stations to fuel CNG heavy goods vehicles.
