hTTps://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006tgy1 There are currently court cases around the world because of both government and company inaction on climate change. 30 Min radio 4 broadcast which is well worth listening too. NG have a slide deck on their website on the conversion of the UK gas network to hydrogen/ hydrogen mix.

Saltaire111 Re: post 7662 Don’t forget it was under John’s watch that our share price hit £12+ in 2016 Obviously, he shares the concerns of shareholders in ensuring a decent return for investors. He is a down to earth chap that knows his business. The real culprits are pen pushing Ofgem, far removed from reality.

It seems that the large stakeholders are backing JP, that's what really matters, pleasing to see NG forging ahead with an acquisition that strengthens the business. Anywhere under £9 with the positive dividend commitment is compelling for Pension funds. Interesting to see the analyst's opinion later.

Makes sense now why shareholders are invited by NG to a COPT26 web conference next week.

Nailed the double bottom of 805.4p from 26/2. A bad start to the day, but looking more positive now. Good luck everyone, Sid.

Together these transactions will: -- strategically pivot National Grid's UK portfolio towards electricity. The proportion of the Group's assets in electricity will increase from c.60% to c.70%; -- strengthen National Grid's long-term growth outlook by ensuring a significant scale position in electricity distribution through the acquisition of WPD, the UK's largest electricity distribution business. Electricity distribution is expected to see a high level of asset growth as a result of the ongoing energy transition; -- significantly enhance National Grid's central role in the delivery of the UK's net zero targets, given the complementary nature of transmission and distribution, providing benefits for customers; -- deliver shareholder value as the transactions are expected to be significantly earnings accretive from year one, generate a return in excess of National Grid's cost of capital and, taken together with the proposed NGG Sale, continue to be earnings accretive in the longer term; -- underpin National Grid's 5 to 7% asset growth target for longer, further supporting National Grid's updated dividend policy to deliver annual dividend per share growth in line with UK CPIH inflation, while expecting to maintain its current overall strong investment grade credit rating; -- maintain the Group's geographic and regulatory diversity, with c.40% of the Group assets in the US after the sales of NECO and stake in NGG; -- generate attractive shareholder value through the sales of NECO and a majority stake in NGG; and -- ensure management continuity and focus: the CEO and CFO of WPD will lead the UK distribution business as part of the enlarged Group. National Grid, recognising the importance of WPD to the communities it serves, intends to maintain the WPD headquarters in Bristol and offices in other key locations. Completion of the WPD Acquisition, which will be funded by fully committed bridge facilities, is expected to occur within the next four months and completion of the NECO Sale is expected to occur before the end of the first quarter of 2022. National Grid expects to launch the sale process for NGG in the second half of this year and complete the sale approximately a year later".

"National Grid expects to launch the sale process for NGG in the second half of this year and complete the sale approximately a year later. "Given the strategic nature of its business coupled with its central position in a transition towards a hydrogen economy, it will continue to play a vital role in the UK's energy system. We expect strong interest when the sale process begins, likely to be in the second half of this year," Pettigrew said." So if there's going to be a "transition towards a hydrogen economy", why are they flogging more of it? I guess it's because they believe it'll be a smaller part of energy supply. My head hurts.

It requires no skill, expertise, experience or knowledge to call for anything. In fact, the less knowledge of something the easier it is to call for changes.

It doesn't matter what Ng wants. Ng does what the government wants, implementing their energy strategy. I think the days are long gone when Ng or cerl or cegb advise the gov on energy issues - civil servants now 'advise' Ng on how the grid should be run.Above applies to electricity, no idea about gas. But I expect Ng see green gas initiatives presenting insurmoutable issues they could do without.

NG want to move into green, market unsure about this and what it means. Failed experiment to merge Transco/lettace/lattice or whatever it was called with NG and also to move into the USA.

This is a very large shift in NGs strategy that, to my mind, has not been particularly well sign-posted the Board. It will be interesting to read what the industry's specialists think about it. It also suggests that there is not a great future for gas in the UK if the historic owner of the network wants to sell it off. There is talk of mixing hydrogen with natural gas to reduce emissions - but this is clearly to technical for NG to promote. The great British public has yet to wake up to the greening of gas and what it means for the pound in their pocket. When they do, politicians may well have to scamper for cover.

Bigger company, larger remuneration for BoD’s Think they want to take advantage of Boris’ Green Energy revolution. But would have liked them to have challenged and won the case against Ofgem regarding the derisory ROE first.

Guess management wants the story of the shift from old fuels to electrification/EV ... they can put pictures of windmills now throughout the annual report and get an esg score... notwithstanding gas is cleaner than wind/solar if you count the whole life cycle of infrastructure

Why no warranty with this acquisition and being replaced with an insurance paid by whom the vendor or NG. Hopefully proper due diligence has been performed and not just a paper exercise. But on the face of it properly managed might be all right.
