National Grid

National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) owns and maintains the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales. That includes around 7200km kilometres of overhead line, about 2800km kilometres of underground cable and 350 substations.

We move electricity from where it’s generated, down the ‘motorway’ of the electricity system, to our direct customers and to the distribution companies that deliver that power to homes and businesses. We play a vital role in connecting millions of people to the energy they use, safely, reliably and efficiently.

Through transformational engineering, we are helping our country to achieve its sustainability targets, by ensuring our network gives fair access to clean sources of energy. The transition to a low-carbon economy is one of the defining issues of the 21st century, and we can’t make a bigger difference in today’s, or tomorrow’s, world than to create a road to net zero.

Innovation Leadership Forum

The Innovation Leadership Forum (ILF) is a visionary and original Think & Do Tank which works with senior management teams to instil the confidence to lead and innovate, confidentially and responsibly, in the turbulent context of the 21st century.

The foundations on which all the ILF’s work builds are a focus on people, a deep understanding of specific context, a system-based approach, and a deep belief that all innovation today has to have sustainability considerations at its core.

The ILF was set up by innovation philosopher, storyteller and catalyst Dr Bettina von Stamm in 2004.
