To meet the challenges of a changing industry it is
imperative that we collaborate and share knowledge as widely as possible, with
stakeholders, academics, and other DNOs and TOs.
Below you can read about just some of our recent
collaborations. If you have an idea worth sharing, please let us know
Innovation Centre exists to bring energy innovation and industry together in
the UK as we move towards a low carbon future.
We have partnered with the EIC and they are looking for
novel projects and solutions to transform today’s power networks.
The EIC’s specialist team will work with you to find the best funding
options for your ideas of business, and guide you through the application

The IET PNRA was established
through a strategic partnership agreement between the Engineering and Physical
Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), electricity transmission and distribution
companies, and related manufacturers and consultants. It funds and supports PhD
researchers in power industry-related projects, and helps to maintain and
improve the research and teaching capacity in power engineering subjects.
A range of projects are addressed
in this programme, including:
Industry partners, the IET, and
academia have all agreed that the projects are beneficial to both the DNOs
through potential breakthroughs that could lead to new practices or products
and to academia by raising the profile of power engineering.
We are an industrial partner in
the SUPERGEN-funded HubNet consortium, which also includes eight universities
and has the objective of coordinating research in energy networks in the UK. We
were also an industrial partner in the previous SUPERGEN-funded asset
management and performance of energy systems (AMPerES) project which involved
six UK universities. AMPerES ended in 2010 but provides an early and effective
example of our participation in multi-party academic collaborations.
