The Holford Rules Guidelines we follow for the routeing of new high voltage overhead transmission lines.
The Horlock Rules Guidelines we follow for the siting of new substations.
National Grid’s commitments when undertaking works in the UK Our stakeholder, community and amenity policy, which sets out our ten commitments when undertaking electricity and gas work in the UK.
Our approach to the design and routeing of electricity transmission lines This document sets out the process that we use to take projects forward: the stages of consultation; the people and organisations that we consult with, and the way in which we appraise and narrow down the options. Our approach to options appraisal This document provides more detail on the various assessments we undertake at different stages of the project. Undergrounding high voltage electricity transmission lines - the technical issues Information on the technical issues associated with undergrounding high voltage transmission lines. Electricity transmission cost study - National Grid’s view How the Institution of Engineering and Technology and Parsons Brinckerhoff’s report (Jan 2012) on the costs of new electricity transmission infrastructure compares with National Grid’s view.Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMFs) - The facts Produced by the Energy Networks Association, this guide explains the research undertaken with regard to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) and health and discusses the conclusions of that research. Investing in Communities Our role in communities
National Grid and the Electricity Industry Our role in the electricity industry and how we operate the electricity transmission system in England and Wales The Energy Challenge The challenge the UK faces in meeting projected energy needs over the next few decades and our role in meeting this challenge.
The Planning Act 2008 How companies consult with the public about major projects and our commitment to genuine and meaningful community engagement through the development of major projects.
Overhead line construction/refurbishment How National Grid builds and refurbishes over head lines. Substation construction/refurbishment How National Grid replaces, upgrades or builds new substations. High Voltage Direct Current Electricity – technical information Technical information on HVDC and the situations under which we apply the technology. Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMFs) Information on EMFs and how our transmission network is designed and operated to ensure public safety. Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) Information on the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and how we take the information from the EIA fully into account before a decision is made as to whether a proposed development can go ahead. Environmental and Engineering Surveys This document explains the variety of surveys carried out during the planning stages of projects.
Undergrounding policy: Approach to existing overhead lines
18 per cent of our electricity comes from nuclear reactors, in which uranium atoms are split up to produce heat (a process known as 'fission').
