NIC Projects - The Network Innovation Competition (NIC) is an annual opportunity for UK electricity network operators to compete for funding for the development and demonstration of new technologies, operating and commercial arrangements. The NIC is expected to focus on funding larger scale and greater value innovation projects. 

NIA Projects - In addition to the larger projects, Western Power Distribution is continuing to deliver a portfolio of smaller low carbon projects through the Network Innovation Allowance (NIA). The NIA was introduced by Ofgem for the RIIO-ED1 Distribution Price Control Review period which  took effect on 1st April 2015 and will continue until 31st March 2023.
