One of the sources of investment in innovation, unique to the UK, is via the RIIO framework. The most recent price control period, known as RIIO-2, will prepare the UK Energy Networks to deliver Net Zero at lowest cost to customers.  All the while maintaining world-class levels of system reliability and customer service, and ensuring no consumer is left behind.


RIIO-2 will lead to £660m+ being invested in innovation by the networks over the next 5 years.  This presents a huge opportunity for innovators from all over the world to come forward with their proposals to help support this transition and collaborate together.


This webinar covers:


  • A brief introduction to RIIO-2
  • Visibility of the networks' current innovation plans
  • Opportunities to connect with the networks and Ofgem
  • The opportunities available for innovation

  • Laura Hutton, Senior Policy Analyst, Network Price Controls at Ofgem
  • Mark Danter, Senior Project Manager at Northern Gas Networks
  • Paul Gallagher, Head of Innovation at National Grid Electricity Transmission
  • Patrick Erwin, Policy & Markets Director at Northern Powergrid
