INNOVATION Calls

Alternative Cable Installation Methods

Can you help one of our distribution network operator (DNO) partners reduce the environmental and social impact of its cable laying activities?

For additional information about this opportunity click here:  EIC Call for Innovation: Alternative Cable Installation Methods 

Thousands of kilometres of underground cables will be laid in the UK within the RIIO-ED1 period (2015-2023) – that’s a lot of trenches that need to be dug.

As well as reducing the impact on local communities, the DNO is looking to reduce the significant expenditure associated with the replacement and reinforcement of its networks.

The DNO involved in this latest call for innovation is particularly interested in innovative solutions which are already commercially available or can be shown to be close to market.

If you have the skill set or experience to contribute to this opportunity, register your interest by calling us on 0151 348 8040 and quoting the reference number DNO-16-01, or by completing the form below.

The deadline for registering initial interest in this call is 5pm, Wednesday 22nd June.

This is the latest in a series of calls for innovation, managed by the EIC, which offers innovators the opportunity to register interest and propose potential solutions to targeted energy distribution sector problems.
