Who we are

National Grid Ventures (NGV) is at the forefront of the energy transition. We operate across the UK, Europe and US, developing, operating, and investing in large-scale clean energy infrastructure. We’re helping to accelerate society’s drive towards net zero while maintaining security of supply today.

NGV runs separately from National Grid plc’s core regulated operations. We’ve built a broad portfolio of businesses that work together to keep the lights on, decarbonise the economy and power a clean, fair and affordable energy future for consumers. 

Our diverse businesses include subsea electricity interconnectors, wind and solar power generation, competitive electricity transmission, battery storage, conventional generation and LNG regasification and storage. We’re also developing emerging technologies such as offshore hybrid assets and hydrogen, which could play a key role in decarbonisation.

Above all, we are a team of passionate, purpose-driven people committed to making a difference today and in the future by making the energy system better for everyone.

Explore what we do

Onshore wind and solar

Through our National Grid Renewables business, we develop, build, own and operate competitive, high-performance renewable energy projects across the United States.

Competitive electricity transmission

In the United States we are developing and operating the large-scale infrastructure that moves renewable energy from where it is produced to where it is needed most.

Electricity Interconnectors

NGV’s portfolio of electricity interconnectors allow zero-carbon electricity to flow efficiently between Britain and its neighbours.

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

We operate the world-class Grain LNG terminal in Kent, the largest LNG terminal in Europe. Grain LNG gives the UK access to more diverse supplies of natural gas from around the world.


Through National Grid Generation (GENCO) we safely and efficiently operate a conventional generation plant that is vital to security of supply in the Northeastern United States.

Offshore Hybrid Assets

Offshore Hybrid Assets (OHAs) combine interconnector and offshore wind technologies in a smarter way, enabling large volumes of offshore wind to be simultaneously connected to GB and its neighbours.

Offshore wind

We're supporting the development of offshore wind in the Northeast US through Community Offshore Wind, a joint venture between National Grid and RWE Renewables.


Hydrogen has the potential to play a major role in the decarbonisation of industry and we are involved in projects that support the development of a hydrogen economy..
