WPD's 2018 Network Innovation Allowance (NIA)


Following the success of our previous three Network Innovation Competition (NIC) Third Party Calls this year the scope for direct third party participation was extended to the Network Innovation Allowance (NIA) funding mechanism. 

The NIA call focussed on the three core innovation areas, Assets, Network Operations and Customers; we received a total of 91 submissions and we are now looking to take nine proposals forward.

We have produced a summary report providing detail on the call, submissions and next steps.

The report can be found here
