The Energy Innovation Centre (EIC), Energy Systems Catapult (ESC), Innovate UK and BEAMA are partnering to host the Innovation Zone at this year’s LCNI Conference 2017.

The Innovation Zone is a dedicated showcase for emerging innovation for utilities, electricity and gas networks. We are hosting 11 UK start-up companies, all with solutions for UK utilities and network operators.

We hope to help facilitate activity that will ensure new technologies are driven into business as usual and gain market volumes. There are also significant export opportunities for all UK businesses involved in innovation projects across the UK and we are working hard to provide a platform from which UK expertise can be promoted to a range of potential customers and markets.

This document provides further information on the host organisations and a summary of all the companies who are exhibiting at the 2017 Innovation Zone.
