Together we innovate
The EIC (Energy Innovation Centre) brings industry and innovators together. As a not-for-profit organisation, we operate a shared platform and provide an open environment for our partners and community, in the energy and utilities industries, to innovate together. Improving the quality of people’s lives is at the core of what we do, and by working together we can achieve a safe, affordable, net-zero future for everyone.
What is the EIC?
The EIC is a not-for-profit energy organisation that supports innovators to find new project opportunities in gas and electricity transmission and distribution.
In partnership with seven of the UK’s energy networks coming together, we’re striving to bring innovation forward as the world transitions to low-carbon economy.

See what our Innovators have to say
The EIC has opened the doors for us... We couldn’t have done it without them. My advice to Innovators starting out is to go through the EIC.
My experience with the EIC has been very good. They managed all our finances, monthly reports and helped us bring the project into fruition.
Working with the EIC has been great!...They are essentially a big brother to help you if you feel overwhelmed with the size of a project, they are always very helpful.
