Today, SO publishes its first ever Innovation Strategy. It sets out our innovation priorities for 2018 and how we plan to work with industry, academic and other partners to solve the challenges facing Britain’s energy system.
The System Operator will be showing an array of progressive projects at December’s LCNI Conference in Telford. Anyone with a stake in the future of our power networks should be there.
From a world-first testbed for new technology to eco-friendly gas alternatives, ETO is plugging into LCNI 2017 with an impressive line-up of industry-defining innovations.
From artificial intelligence to digital data collection and a robot that rewrites the rules, there’s plenty to see from our Gas Transmission business at this year’s Low Carbon Networks and Innovation Conference.
Great minds don’t always think alike … something that we value. So, we’re looking for brilliant innovators to help us solve the biggest challenges facing the electricity transmission network in England and Wales.
In response to our design competition launched this summer, six teams have made the competition shortlist with their novel proposals on how to re-use our empty gasholder bases.
Selective Catalytic Reduction systems could help bring a proportion of our gas compressors in line with stringent European emission standards, according to the findings of a major innovation project.
In-line inspection technologies – such as acoustic resonance technology and electro-magnetic acoustic transducers – could help us build a better understanding of the condition of our pipelines.
Just a stone’s throw away from Manchester United’s football ground, a team from the Gas Transmission Owner has diverted a high-pressure gas pipeline and saved the customer at least £150,000.
