The Open Networks Project is a major industry initiative that will transform the way our energy networks operate, underpinning the delivery of the smart grid. The project seeks to enable the uptake of new smart energy technologies by more and more homes, businesses, and communities in the UK. Allowing customers to take advantage of these new technologies to take control of their energy will lower costs and secure the energy we rely on every day.
