Energy Innovation Summit

The Summit is the only event of its kind, bringing together energy system innovators and decision makers from across the country.

People in conversation during The Summit

The Summit is the UK’s flagship knowledge dissemination event for the electricity and gas energy network operators. It offers a single platform where delegates can access the major learnings from the largest regulator-funded innovation projects in the country – the Network Innovation Competitions (NICs) Network Innovation Allowance (NIA) and Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF).

The Summit is managed by Energy Networks Association and builds on a decade-long legacy as being the go-to conference for network innovation. Previously known as the Energy Networks Innovation Conference (ENIC), the event was rebranded to The Summit in 2022 as part of a new collaboration with the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, Innovate UK, Ofgem and Regen, opening the UK's leading energy innovation event up to wider industry as well as attracting new domestic and international delegates.
