Greenhouse Gas Emissions




In operating and maintaining the Gas National Transmission System (NTS), it is necessary for National Grid to release quantities of methane (which is a potent greenhouse gas) from the commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the assets in the system. We are currently incentivised on the quantity of greenhouse gas emitted from our system compressors as these are currently the most significant venting source.
