National Grid aims for 'net zero' emissions in U.S. by 2050

Fri, 2nd Oct 2020 17:15

Oct 2 (Reuters) - Britain's National Grid on
Friday pledged to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions in
its U.S. operations by 2050, including from operations and
emissions resulting from the sale of electricity and gas.

The energy company, which serves more than 20 million
customers through its networks in New York, Massachusetts and
Rhode Island, said it has identified 10 areas to focus on,
including reducing demand through energy efficiency and demand
response, decarbonizing the gas network through use of renewable
natural gas and hydrogen, reducing methane emissions and
investing in large-scale carbon management.

Amid a groundswell of public pressure for climate action,
companies, sectors and countries worldwide have trumpeted new
pledges, from setting net-zero emissions targets to declaring
carbon neutrality in specific time frames.
