We work closely with businesses and our fellow utility companies to develop innovative solutions to shared problems and challenges.
Key organisations and industry forums include:
Energy Innovation Centre (EIC): acts as our dating agency with SMEs (Small to Medium Enterprises). Through the EIC, we can work with a community of more than 2,000 businesses to develop solutions to common industry issues. It’s a great way to source expertise and ideas, while also investing in local firms.
Gas Innovation Governance Group: a monthly gathering of UK gas distributors.
Cross Utility Innovation Group: a regular get-together of water, power and gas providers. Over the past year, partners have been working on a joint project to measure the social impact of network innovation activities.
Low Carbon Network Innovation Conference: an annual conference at which utility companies showcase green, affordable energy solutions.
Energy Innovation Centre Gas Distributors Forum: a quarterly meeting of gas distributors and SMEs to solve problems and explore fresh ideas.
