  • Electricity Transmission Innovation

  • ETx Pylon NIA web iconOur innovation strategy continues to be built upon three core pillars.

    Building upon the experience and lessons learnt from the IFI scheme, feedback from our stakeholders and from other third-party organisations, we will leverage our three pillar approach to maximise the benefits to the end consumer. In order to optimise this strategy and fully utilise the available funding under the innovation incentives for the benefit of our stakeholders, we will be expanding the role of the current R&D Strategy team.

    In recognition of the fact that innovation is broader than just technological R&D, the newly-christened Innovation team will encourage, coordinate and govern the wider innovation process.
