All gas in the UK passes through National Grid’s national transmission system on its way to consumers. Our UK distribution networks deliver gas to around 10.9 million consumers.
On 10 November 2015, National Grid outlined its intention to sell a majority stake in the UK Gas Distribution business.
The UK Gas Distribution business has been an important part of National Grid and the sale of a majority stake will realise some of the value we have created for our shareholders.
More information will be provided once the sales process has commenced.
