Infographics & Factsheets

Our energy networks have a world leading reputation and a strong track record of safely and securely providing the the gas and electricity we all need, whilst delivering investment and reducing costs for the consumer. This page sets out some key facts and figures about how they do that. 


ENA has developed a series of infographics that show how since the UK’s energy networks market was created in 1990, the companies have improved levels of network performance and attracted new investment that has created jobs in communities across the country, whilst driving down costs for the energy bill payer. 


In May 2018, ENA commissioned YouGov to undertake polling research on customer attitudes to the decarbonisation of home heating. You can fine an infographic of the results here and the full set of polling tables here and here.


Energy network companies in Great Britain are natural monopolies that are accountable to the public through the energy regulator, Ofgem, Government and Parliament.
