Northern Powergrid Innovation Festival 2020 - Microresilience

26 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.

Climate Change is threatening our network and the ability to keep lives powered across our region. This isn’t a future threat – it’s something we are dealing with today. Join Andrew Webster to find out how we are using the latest innovative approaches to make the power infrastructure we look after more resilient to extreme weather.
