National Grid plc is an electricity and gas utility focused on transmission and distribution activities in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Business segments include UK Electricity Transmission, UK Gas Transmission, National Grid Ventures and other activities, and US Regulated Gas and Electricity distribution and transmission networks.

In the UK we own and operate the electricity transmission network in England and Wales, with day-to-day responsibility for balancing supply and demand. We also operate, but do not own, the Scottish networks. Our networks comprise approximately 7,200km (4,474 miles) of overhead line, 1,500km (932 miles) of underground cable and 342 substations. We also own and operate the gas National Transmission System in Great Britain, with day-to-day responsibility for balancing supply and demand. Our network comprises approximately 7,660km (4,760 miles) of high-pressure pipe and 618 above-ground installations. As Great Britain’s System Operator, we make sure gas and electricity is transported safely and efficiently from where it is produced to where it is consumed. From April 2019, the Electricity System Operator (ESO) will be a new standalone business within National Grid, legally separate from all other parts of the National Grid Group. Other UK companies mainly relate to businesses operating in competitive markets outside of our core regulated businesses.
