Innovation is potentially the single biggest challenge facing businesses across all sectors today. At the EIC we are helping the gas and electricity networks to address this challenge by enabling them to build a strong innovation culture within their businesses and to streamline their innovation processes.

We do this by encouraging collaboration on areas where mutual benefits can be realised on common challenges.


Innovation needs

These are the needs that our energy industry partners are actively looking to fulfil through collaboration. If you have a technology or idea that responds to these needs then we want to hear about it.


Innovation calls

These are clearly defined areas where the gas and electricity network operators are seeking innovative technologies that have the potential to offer significant benefits to energy customers and the industry. Each call follows a process and interest must be registered ahead of the specified deadline.



These are the innovation projects that the EIC has helped to shape and deliver, and that create value for both our innovation community and our industry partners. Do you have a technology that we could develop into a future project?
