Northern Powergrid Innovation Festival 2020 - Distribution Future Energy Scenarios

12 Aug 2020

09:30am - 10:30am



This August we will be showcasing some of the most innovative projects that are helping us to maintain, improve and strengthen the local power infrastructure in the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire. From groundbreaking new ways of detecting problems to the very latest in drone technology – our best ideas to tackle climate change, fix faults before they impact customers and bring new ideas to the area will be on show.

Data is power. Join Mary Black to learn how we are using the most innovative data mapping approaches to see how key low carbon technology – from EVs to heat pumps – will grow in each town and city we serve. Find out how you can use our data, and how we can better prepare our region to become net zero based on yours.
