The possibility that there may be effects of EMFs on health is an important issue for National Grid. This project will enable National Grid to strengthen its position in the face of the external threat posed by the EMF issue, through helping it to avoid unjustified constraints in its operations while at the same time ensuring that the EMFs associated with the operations are not the cause of any adverse health effects. This is an umbrella project providing resource for a variety of aspects of research on EMFs and Health, including resource directed towards management of projects funded elsewhere.
This project will analyse the interaction of electric fields and magnetic fields with people, and the assessment of fields associated with the use of electricity.
