SSEN Transmission’s £10 billion programme of investment into the transmission network across the north of Scotland will play a key role in enabling the connection of up to 11GW of new offshore wind capacity through ScotWind projects, enough to power more than ten million homes in the UK and supporting 20,000 jobs across the UK, 9,000 of which will be in Scotland.

Known as the ‘Pathway to 2030 programme’, the company’s huge investment in the north of Scotland will deliver billions in value to the UK economy whilst enabling connection of over one fifth of the UK Government’s 50GW 2030 offshore wind goal. The projects include several new onshore reinforcements and subsea links and are part of a major upgrade of the electricity transmission network across Great Britain that is required to meet UK and Scottish Government climate change and energy security targets.
