National Grid and National Grid ESO's Winter Outlook reports present the view of security of supply for the gas and electricity systems for the winter ahead.

Responding to the reports, Paul McGimpsey, Director of Markets & Regulation at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:

“Having access to diverse sources of electricity and gas helps the UK to have a resilient energy system. While we continue to drive action on Net Zero our priority remains to keep energy flowing this winter.”
