Every time you make a cup of tea or turn on the heating you’re using energy provided by the National Grid. Their job is to build and look after the cables, wires, pipes and pylons that carry gas and high voltage electricity around the UK.
Because of that, they are at the heart of the nation’s climate challenge and commitment to achieving carbon net zero by 2050.
We have been working with them since 2019 to help tell that story across a variety of campaigns and settings. Our films, animations and designs have brought to life key topics including energy bills, Net Zero infrastructure, Hydrogen transmission systems, as well as provided a voice for young engineers and young students when putting forward their views on the future of energy in the UK.
