Environmental objectives are central to the current and future development of the energy sector, largely driven by EU and UK decarbonisation, renewable energy and security of supply objectives. The electricity sector is expected to help achieve these aims by increasing its use of low-carbon technology.  In order to decarbonise Britain’s electricity supply we will need to play a key role in providing timely supporting transmission infrastructure. To encourage this behaviour the Environmental Discretionary Reward incentivises our Electricity Transmission business to provide evidence on how we are achieving high standards in environmental management, as well as facilitating the industry towards a low carbon energy system.
