Local Net Zero

Helping you achieve your Net Zero ambitions

The DSO’s Local Net Zero team is here to facilitate local authorities’ low carbon plans through support, planning, guidance and data sharing.


More than 80% of Local Authorities within the UK Power Networks licence area are aiming to be Net Zero and carbon neutral before 2050. If you are involved or interested in planning for Net Zero 2050, you have come to the right place to find what you need to get started.
