LCNI highlights

After a jam packed three days of innovative tech demonstrations, engaging panel discussions and interesting exhibitions, LCNI is over for another year.

The conference was the perfect platform to discuss our vision for a collective future by exploring the challenges that are impacting the sector and finding ways to overcome them through working in collaboration.

As well as our own stand, we also hosted an innovation hub with BEAMA and Innovate UK. We were joined by 16 SMEs who have developed transformational technologies that have the potential to solve some of the biggest challenges faced by UK utilities and network operators. Companies such as these demonstrate what can be achieved when we embrace innovation.

Our managing director, Denise Massey spoke as part of a panel discussion on day three of the event discussing ways to measure the success of innovation projects and the importance of continuing to drive projects forward at pace.

She said: “The conference is always a fantastic opportunity for the energy sector to shout about the successful innovation projects it has been involved in and the 2016 event did not disappoint.

“It was great to see so many SMEs there as well as the networks. There were many great conversations and new connections made by our EIC team throughout this years’ conference and we are already looking forward to next year’s event.”
