Our approach to transforming the power system for everyone's benefit.

Through our Innovation Programme, we research, develop and deploy innovative solutions and technologies which help us manage the ever-changing power system. Innovation is one of SONI's core values and we innovate to drive value for all users of the power system.

We aim to create flexibility in the system so that it can adapt to the changing nature of the electricity industry. Northern Ireland has ambitious targets for renewable generation and increased energy user participation. This creates the opportunity to do things differently and deliver solutions that have tangible benefits for our consumers and the wider community.

The Innovation Programme involves the integration of new technologies and services which complement each other and improve the way we operate the electricity system. The programme will help facilitate a low-carbon energy future, while helping us operate and maintain a safe, secure and efficient power system.

Currently there are two significant components to the Innovation Programme
