SSEN Transmission has launched a new webinar series – Delivering a Network for Net Zero – to share more about its ambitions to upgrade the electricity transmission network across the north of Scotland.

This is to provide energy security in the UK, and to deliver on the Government’s climate change targets.

SSEN Transmission’s £10 billion programme of upgrades, known as the “Pathway to 2030”, involves creating new electricity transmission infrastructure across the north of Scotland to help connect new renewable energy generation to the national grid and take it to where it will be used, contributing significantly to the country’s net zero targets, delivering energy security and helping in the fight against climate change.

A new webinar series will outline how SSEN Transmission is upgrading its network across the north of Scotland.

The webinars have been created to help share more information about the critical projects that are being delivered across the north of Scotland and will feature insights from the team at SSEN Transmission, as well as special guests from across the industry.

The first webinar, titled Delivering a network for net zero – Why do we need to radically scale up the transmission network in the north of Scotland?, will consider the big picture when it comes to the ever-changing use of electricity in modern society, and what infrastructure is needed to support the substantial growth of renewable energy in the UK’s energy mix as the country heads towards a net zero future.

National Grid ESO will also be speaking during the webinar, offering their insight into the key role they are playing in shaping the GB energy system’s integrated approach and providing an overview of their Holistic Network Design (HND) which was launched in July 2022.

The webinar is open to anyone, and attendees can register now on SSEN Transmission’s website. The first webinar of the series will be held on Friday, September 29 between 10am and 11.30am, with questions invited to be submitted during the presentation. All webinars will be recorded and can be viewed after the event.

Rob McDonald, SSEN Transmission managing director, said: “In order to meet the UK and Scottish Government’s net zero targets and help fight climate change, we need to radically scale-up the transmission network across the north of Scotland to allow renewable generation to be connected to the grid and taken to where it is needed across the country.

“It’s a complex process that will be delivered at a scale not previously seen since the transmission grid was first built in the 1950s. That’s why we’ve launched a new webinar series, to further explain the need for these projects, the work that needs to be done across Scotland, and how we plan to deliver on it all.

“We’re delighted to welcome representatives from National Grid ESO to our first webinar to share more about their Holistic Network Design, which is essentially the blueprint for the scale of change required across the GB transmission system, putting us on the right path towards net zero.

“We encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about our Pathway to 2030 programme to sign up to attend and submit questions for our panel to consider.”
