Network Options Assessment report
National Grid ESO has published this year’s Network Options Assessment (NOA) report which sets out the need for £5bn of investment in grid infrastructure in the north of Scotland.
Responding, Morag Watson, Director of Policy at Scottish Renewables, said:
“With its abundance of renewable energy potential, the north of Scotland has an important role to play in achieving net-zero. We welcome this year’s NOA report and its reinforcement of the need for £5bn of investment in grid infrastructure in the north of Scotland. Today is the starting point for the next step in creating a Scottish electricity grid for net-zero, with this investment key to enabling the growth of the renewables industry, bringing skilled jobs and huge economic opportunities to the area.”
