Balfour Beatty has been awarded a 50 million contract to replace a high-voltage substation at Littlebrook Power Station in Kent on behalf of National Grid. The five-year contract forms a critical part of National Grids transformation of the National Transmission Network, ensuring the continued supply of power to the South East of England.
The project includes the installation of the cabling and overhead line connections to the national grid and design of the switchgear - the circuit board used to control, protect and isolate electrical equipment - into an effective and accessible design for the substation.
Separately, Ofgem is consulting on National Grids proposal to spend around 118 million to place almost 9km of electricity cables underground in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Ofgem is consulting on requests to allow National Grid, Wales and West Utilities and Cadent to pass on an additional 144 million of costs for improving resilience to physical and cyber security threats, managing street works, and compensating landowners for work on gas pipelines.
National Grids program started as a small implementation of Opower Home Energy Reports (HERs) in New York, and is today a multi-state engagement that touches 2.6 million customers in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
In addition to driving savings, National Grids HER reports have also improved customer sentiment.
This has improved National Grids knowledge and understanding of the work involved in determining a marine licence application and the wider work we are undertaking to improve our services.
Members of the Marine Management Organisations (MMO) marine licensing team recently met with National Grid as part of ongoing improvements being made to the service it provides to industry.
Ofgem has today published its decision on National Grids
