Our gas network is one of the best developed in the world, providing safe, secure, affordable energy to homes and businesses across the UK. 

To meet the biggest energy challenge of our generation – making deep cuts to carbon emissions by 2050 – it needs to embrace new technology which builds on these strengths and delivers the integrated, flexible network of the future. This briefing sets out how it is already doing that. Take a look at our Gas Futures Messages booklet attached.
