Rob McDonald, Managing Director of SSEN-Transmission, will share his background in the industry, from his early career with the energy regulator Ofgem to overseeing the fastest growing electricity transmission network in Europe and the opportunities this presents for the Highlands and Islands.

No transition without transmission: Delivering a network for Net Zero

The north of Scotland’s electricity transmission network is the key enabler to unlocking the region’s vast renewable and economic potential and is set to play a leading role in delivering the UK and Scottish Government’s net zero and energy security targets. With an investment programme of over £20bn in new onshore and offshore network infrastructure, including connecting Scotland’s vast renewable electricity resources, this investment will provide significant job and economic opportunities across the region, delivering a lasting legacy for generations to come.
