We invest in the
potential of energy.

And in entrepreneurs
with a provocative vision
for Energy & IT.

Disrupting ourselves
before we’re disrupted.

We invest in categories of one.
In genius that hits a target no one else can see.

Connecting ideas to energy.

Single point access to the National Grid global network.

It takes energy
to change the world.

NGP realizes the full potential of your idea,
creating enduring global impact.

Exactly Like Nothing Else

National Grid created NGP to ‘disrupt itself’ and advance the energy systems of tomorrow. This includes investing in seed-stage and mature startups at the intersection of energy and emerging tech; launching new businesses from scratch, and infusing an entrepreneurial culture into National Grid.
NGP is dedicated to creating a smarter, renewable future.

NGP focuses broadly on helping National Grid perform our core operations better and playing a central role in the global transformation of energy. AI & Analytics, Cloud, IoT, Smart Grid, and Security are all of interest to us. But we also love ideas that don’t fit any existing category.

With a $250 million technology investment fund, our portfolio already includes 20 companies, and 53% of the time we’ve been the lead investor in these deals.
