As part of the development of our innovation portfolio this year, we have recently worked with all the UK Gas Distribution companies to develop a joint Gas Networks Innovation strategy. This document encompasses seven key themes including
- Future of gas
- Safety and emergency
- Reliability and maintenance
- Distribution mains replacement
- Environment and low carbon.

The document is designed to help all our stakeholders understand the challenges in our sector and where gaps and opportunities for future innovation might lie.
It has been published in draft for a period of consultation and we would greatly appreciate your views on the document. I have attached a link to a quick survey here.
We will then take on board your views as we move towards the final publication in early 2018.
We will also be presenting on the strategy at the LCNI conference this year, so it would be great to see you there:
