Who we are
Innovation isn't easy, but it drives the world we live in. That's why 12 years ago, the UK energy networks decided that it made sense to work together to bring innovation forward and improve performance as the world transitions to a low carbon economy. Today the EIC is a not-for-profit organisation, owned by seven utility partners working with 7000+ innovators across the world. Over 130 calls for innovation have been launched and 85% of these calls have been successful in sourcing a solution.
