University partnerships

Best-in-breed academic thinking helps inform our future plans and technology pilots. For example, we work with the University of Strathclyde on our Power Networks Demonstration Centre whilst the University of Reading is embedded in the Thames Valley Vision initiative, piloting learning to ensure a high quality and affordable electricity network in the future.

Peoples innovation

People in the business are often the best to see new and better ways of doing things. These can be better ways of working, new technologies we should develop, or just something smart to do. We don’t leave these to filter up the business by chance.  We have an active campaign that seeks them out and rewards people if an idea or innovation is taken up.
