Share your views on innovation in the energy sector.

The survey closes on Friday 27th November 2020 - don't miss your chance to share your views on innovation with UK energy networks!

A group of UK energy networks are working together to get direct feedback from their innovation stakeholder communities. 

By taking part in this survey, you will have the opportunity to shape the energy networks' future approaches to innovation. Your views will: 

  • Provide valuable insights to help DNOs prepare their business plans for their next price control (RIIO2) which will begin in 2023
  • Provide new insights for the GDNs and TOs whose business plans have been developed, as their price control will begin in 2021    
  • Be shared with all participating energy networks, meaning that you can feed back your experiences to the energy industry within one survey, all in one place 

Who should take part?

  • Do you work for, or lead a business in the energy sector?
  • Are you an innovation professional, academic or member of a trade body which collaborates with the energy networks?
  • Are you working on projects which are funded by the energy networks?
  • Do you have views and opinions that can help the networks design their business plans?
  • Do you have experience working with the networks and have feedback to share?

One survey, maximum impact.
