East Anglia Green Enablement Project (East Anglia GREEN) is a proposal by National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) to build a new high voltage network reinforcement between Norwich, Bramford and Tilbury. The project is required to reinforce the existing network in East Anglia between the existing substations in those locations, in addition to providing the potential for new offshore wind generation connections.
As the project is currently designed, no network reinforcements works are proposed within East Suffolk. NGET has stated that an alternative offshore option for East Anglia GREEN would likely involve new works to the network in this district, this option has however been discounted.
Non-statutory consultation – April to June 2022
NGET held a non-statutory consultation on their proposals between 21 April and 16 June 2022. The consultation was designed to provide an overview and justification for the project, present the options considered and preferred options identified and outline the next steps in the project’s programme.
