An IGEM Industrial Affiliate Section event
About The Event
Innovation opportunities in the gas industry

The GDNs are planning to invest over £5 billion in the second half of RIIO GD1 (2017-2021) to provide a safe and reliable energy system to the millions of people who rely on it for their heat. Much of this will result in innovation projects.

This event provides a unique opportunity to meet with representatives from the innovation teams of the UK gas transmission and distribution networks.

You’ll hear first-hand from National Grid Gas Transmission, Cadent Gas  Limited, SGN, Northern Gas Networks and Wales & West Utilities about the problems they currently face when running the UK gas network; each of which is detailed within the Gas Network Innovation Problem Statements.

The programme for the day has been designed following feedback from our Industrial Affiliates as to which topics were of most interest to them.
