    The Future Networks and Innovation team develops and delivers innovation projects for our networks businesses. 
    Our projects aim for more effective and efficient ways of providing energy for all customers.

    Our teams identify opportunities to develop and trial innovative technologies, practices and commercial arrangements.  Innovation provides the potential to improve our business and benefit our customers. This is demonstrated throughout our networks. 
    Take a look at our RIIO ED1 innovation strategy here

    Many of our projects benefit from funding through one of Ofgem’s incentive schemes. The way energy is used is changing and new ‘smart grid’ technologies are emerging.
