Electric vehicles and heat pumps

Electric vehicles and heat pumps have a strategic role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and are a key component of the transition to net zero.

Charlotte Stowe

Decarbonisation is changing our energy system rapidly and the way in which energy is produced, supplied and consumed is already very different from only a few years ago.

The pace of change we are seeing is set to accelerate as take up of new technologies such as heat pumps and electric vehicles increases, and consumers exercise greater choice and control over the way in which they use energy.

We unanimously support this transition and are investing in our networks to ensure that they can safely and reliably meet the increase in electricity demand required to support these technologies.

Visit our Connecting to the networks page, for everything you need to know about connecting your electric vehicle and heat pump to the electricity network, including how to ensure your connection is adequate.
