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

This is a unique display of what the UK market can deliver and demonstrates the exceptional ability of the UK market which is seeing significant growth in innovation and new companies entering the market for this sector. A lot of this can be attributed to the degree of innovation funding available today and in the past 5 years, through the Low Carbon Network Fund, Network Innovation Allowance
and Competition. BEAMA, ESC, EIC and Innovate UK are working together to help support these companies and promote UK
capabilities for the industry.

Importantly 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 BEAMA, EIC, ESC and Innovate UK are working hard to provide a platform on which UK expertise can be promoted to a range of potential customers and markets.
