NatPower Group has allocated over £600 million for substation development, aiming to expedite the integration of renewable power into the national grid and support the country’s goal of achieving 100% zero-emission electricity by 2035.

Stefano D.M. Sommadossi, NatPower UK’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “To address the obstacles impeding investments in renewable energy, we will invest in the energy distribution network, upgrading substations to meet at least 15-20% of new requirements.

By investing in substations early and prioritizing energy storage systems, we will facilitate the next stage of the clean energy transition, ultimately reducing energy costs for consumers.”
