The NFU is working to raise awareness of electrical safety for farmers
Electrical power providers, UK Power Networks, is working with the National Farmers’ Union to make farmers more aware of the importance of electrical safety. 
 
Ahead of the harvest season safety advisors will be attending a series of NFU-led events from 23 June at farms across the East of England including Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. The aim is to reach around 700 farmers with important health and safety messages. 
The testing, inspection and certification experts, Bureau Veritas, say that local authorities, commercial property owners and facilities managers should adopt smart grid technology to control the use of electricity during peak demand. 
 
Smart grid systems use renewable energy such as solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery energy storage (BESS) to allow buildings to both produce and use energy in a two-way process. 
smart grid technology will allow us to make better sue of solar and wind energy.

Government plans to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 will change our homes. 
 
New technology is creating a web of interconnected challenges and risks. At the same time the UK has the oldest housing stock in Europe. 
 
As we rely more and more on electricity and connectivity there’s a risk that electrical safety won’t be given the attention it deserves as part of the process. 
UK Power Networks has launched a Foundation to support communities during the move to net zero carbon emissions. 
 
The fund is part of the company’s £4.6billion business plan for 2023 to 2028 that has been submitted to the industry regulator, Ofgem.
