Up to £90m of investment is up for grabs for Britain’s leading energy innovators this week, as energy network companies launch the Call for Ideas for the Network Innovation Competition (NIC). The Call, which is for companies interested in working with Britain’s gas and electricity network operators to develop bids for the funding, is being run by Energy Networks Association (ENA). ENA represents the companies responsible for operating the ‘wires and pipes’ of Britain’s energy network infrastructure. Successful applicants will work with network companies to compete for up to £20 million of funding available for gas network projects and up to £70 million available for electricity network projects. Cross-vector projects can potentially access funding from both pots.
