At the EIC, we pride ourselves on championing the voice of the innovator. We want to give innovators in our industry the opportunity to be heard, and to make a positive difference. 


To this end, the EIC formed the Innovator Impact Panel; a steering group of 13 SMEs and innovators from the EIC’s Innovation Community. 


The Panel was created to ensure the views of the many diverse companies in our community were represented and is made up of innovators from across the UK, representing businesses of differing sizes and with a range of capabilities. 


The Panel has already had a huge influence on the approach to RIIO-2 and has worked with the EIC and Ofgem in helping to inform the approach to innovation in RIIO-2. 


The Impact Panel will continue to make a difference, collaborating with the EIC to ensure we continue to deliver services needed and valued by innovators and ensuring that we create an effective action plan that rises to the challenges identified in the Innovator Insights Survey.
