Innovation programme

As Utility Week Live Online reunites the utilities industry in a virtual space, our pan-utility innovation programme looks in detail at innovating for net zero; innovating for vulnerable customers and innovating for whole systems change. With an opening plenary from Ofgem and Ofwat, the programme also explores the necessary business conditions to take innovation through to business as usual.
