Innovation Funding Incentive

In April 2013, we replaced the Innovation Funding Incentive (IFI) with the Network Innovation Allowance (NIA) for operators of the gas and electricity transmission networks and gas distribution networks.

The IFI remained active for operators of the electricity distribution networks until April 2015, when we replaced it with the NIA.

Companies have established a website to share learning from projects. Details of IFI projects are available on the ENA 'Smarter Networks' Portal.
