These 18 energy network innovation projects were awarded funding under the Ofgem Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF) in July 2022.

They follow on from feasibility studies carried out in spring 2022 with initial ‘discovery’ funding from the SIF, and won further funding through a competitive process to take their ideas to the next stage.

Projects under this competition had to be led by:

  • gas transmission operators
  • gas distribution operators
  • electricity transmission network operators
  • the electricity system operator.

Projects will also work in collaboration with other networks, businesses and academics.
