This programme of work is concerned with mitigation of the impacts of severe weather events. This is being achieved by assessing technology that will enhance National Grid’s preparedness for flooding events and developing better weather observation techniques.
The following objectives have neen defined:

  • Generic solutions and indicative costs to mitigate the risk of flooding should be identified. These may be permanent or temporary and appropriate for new substations or retrofitting to existing substations. It is envisaged that solutions may be site specific, or involve wider flood protection provided by the Environment Agency

  • The form of the output from this work should be considered. In particular how improved mitigation measures would be delivered through industry guidance, regulation or statutory obligation.
