Did you boil a kettle to make a coffee this morning? Or charge your iPod? Or turn on the lights while you brushed your teeth? Have you jumped on the Tube recently or jetted off from one of the major airports in the South East? All of these events could not have occurred without UK Power Networks.
We own and maintain the electricity cables across London, the South East and East of England. We fix power cuts. We maintain and upgrade the power equipment. We move and connect new electricity cables. As one of the UK’s largest energy distribution companies, we’re responsible for delivering electricity to more than eight million customers including homes, schools and businesses. We’re responsible for keeping the lights on for customers regardless of whom they pay their bill to. Our remit also encompasses the design, operation and maintenance of privately-owned electricity networks for clients in the rail, airports, defence and commercial sectors. This has seen us get involved in projects such at Heathrow and Gatwick Airports, High Speed 1 (Channel Tunnel rail link), Thameslink, Canary Wharf and the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.
We’re striving to become an employer of choice, a responsible and respected corporate citizen and sustainably cost efficient. Achieving such objectives means we have embraced a culture based on values of integrity, continuous development, diversity and inclusivity, respect, unity and responsibility. If you share these values and want to play a role in influencing the energy industry’s future then get in touch
