Yorkshire Green Energy Enablement (GREEN) Project
October - December 2021

Consultation opens at 12am on Thursday 28 October until 23:59 on Thursday 9 December 2021

Your opportunity to influence National Grid’s proposals for Yorkshire GREEN

The Yorkshire GREEN Project (the Project or Yorkshire GREEN) will provide the infrastructure needed to improve the transfer of cleaner energy to support the Government’s commitment to quadruple the UK’s offshore wind capacity by 2030. It will provide the capability to manage significantly increased power flows in Great Britain and growing energy demand, which the Climate Change Committee predicts could more than double by 2050.

In March and April 2021, we asked for your views on our early-stage proposals during our non-statutory consultation. We are developing our proposals carefully, taking into account local feedback and results from our surveys and other work we have been conducting.

We are now seeking your views as part of our statutory consultation, where we are presenting more detailed proposals for Yorkshire GREEN. This is a statutory consultation being undertaken under the requirements of the Planning Act 2008. It is likely to be our last consultation on the Project before we submit our Development Consent Order (DCO) application to the Planning Inspectorate.
