Our clean energy vision A fossil-free future for cleanly heating homes and businesses

April 3, 2022

Our clean energy vision
At National Grid we believe achieving a fossil-free
future and addressing climate change is not just a
shared responsibility, but one where we must lead.
We are undertaking a bold initiative that will set
a new climate standard for energy companies across
America. From today forward, we are working to enable
a future where every time our customers use energy
– to turn on their lights, charge their phones, cook
for their families, or heat their homes and businesses
– it can be done without fossil fuels

Grid-Forming Technology in Energy Systems Integration

whitePaper | March 17, 2022

As rising numbers of inverter-based resources (IBRs) are deployed in power systems around the world, their role on the grid is changing and the services needed from them have evolved. In order to maintain grid stability and reliability, IBRs need to provide some of the services currently (or formerly) provided by synchronous generators. Interconnection standards already include requirements for IBRs to have the capability to provide some of these services—such as frequency and voltage support—and the procurement and deployment of the services can be implemented either as mandatory interconnection requirements or as market products
