This site is owned, written and maintained by an electricity company, National Grid, the electricity transmission company in England and Wales. It functions as the EMFs information site for the whole of the UK electricity industry.
Our aim is to give factual, neutral information on EMFs, and to keep the factual information separately from industry’s views on EMFs and from industry EMF policy. If you want to know industry policy, we provide the links to other industry websites where this is set out.
There are some pages where we set out information that is specific to the electricity industry, and on those pages we usually restate that this site is run by the electricity industry, to avoid any ambiguity. For example:
- when we list the research performed by the electricity industry
- when we talk about issues of research ethics
- when we present significant research studies that the industry was involved in
If there are any places on this website where you feel that we have strayed away from simply providing factual material into giving our views on it, please let us know.
There is also a separate section of this website where we detail how the UK electricity industry complies with the occupational and public exposure limits in the UK.
