UK Reduction of Capital Carbon in Infrastructure: Transmission (ROCCIT)
National Grid Transmission, Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks Transmission and Scottish Power Energy Networks Transmission have formed a collaborative group – UK ROCCIT (UK Reduction of Capital Carbon in Infrastructure: Transmission) in order to address and manage the capital carbon emissions associated with developing our networks. As each company supports the low carbon transition through the development of a transmission network which will support the integration of renewables onto the grid, it is increasingly important to consider the carbon emissions associated with building this infrastructure.
The aim of the ROCCIT group is to develop a consistent approach and common methodologies to managing capital carbon emissions and to collaboratively work with our supply chain in a consistent way to create an industry wide approach to managing capital carbon emissions.
