We have a portfolio of active innovation projects funded by both the Network Innovation Allowance (NIA) and Network Innovation Competition (NIC).
Network Innovation Competition (NIC)
We are leading on two NIC projects, which you can learn more about on the individual project pages.
This initiative aims to create a new reactive power market for distributed energy resources (DER) and generate additional capacity on the network.
The Enhanced Frequency Control Capability (EFCC) Project
Facing the challenge of maintaining the 50 Hz frequency stability on the transmission system as new generation technologies come online, such as solar and wind.
