Energy company SSEN Transmission – part of the SSE Group, which brands itself the UK’s ‘national clean energy champion’ – was awarded the Net Zero Award at Monday night’s prestigious Utility Week Awards ceremony in London.

The Net Zero Award recognises SSEN Transmission’s drive to deliver a net zero future by harnessing Scotland’s vast renewables resources and connecting and transporting that power to demand centres across Scotland and beyond.

A recent report by SSEN Transmission – Getting to Net Zero: The critical contribution from electricity generated in the north of Scotland – highlights the significant contribution SSEN Transmission will make to UK and Scottish Government net zero targets.

As well as its role in enabling the growth of renewable electricity, SSEN Transmission is also dedicated to reducing its own impacts on climate change and was the world’s first network company to be accredited by the Science Based Target Initiative for its emissions reduction commitments.

‘Tackling the climate emergency is at the heart of our business and we are hugely honoured to take home the Net Zero Award which recognises our drive to deliver a net zero future,’ said Rob McDonald, managing director of SSEN Transmission.

‘This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of all our teams, our supply chain partners and our customers and stakeholders as we continue to deliver a network for net zero emissions across the north of Scotland.

‘We would also like to congratulate all other winners and nominees from the ceremony and look forward to continuing to collaborate with our industry peers and wider stakeholders to accelerate progress towards a net zero future.’
