Reducing the time to deliver UK transmission infrastructure

While the UK Government has committed to a fully decarbonised electricity system by 2034 and net zero by 2050, delays in the development of transmission infrastructure have caused a queue to connect to the transmission grid, which is slowing the UK’s energy transition. 

In an attempt to reduce the time it takes to deliver such transmission infrastructure to seven years (a 50% reduction on current timings) the Electricity Networks Commissioner has set out a number of recommendations.

These recommendations include greater and uniform planning, standardised designs and equipment and streamlined approvals processes, which we have detailed further in this article.
