Preparing for the future 

We’ve developed a vision for innovation and we believe that one day we’ll change the very idea of how we interact with a transmission network and what it can do for our world. To get there, we’re finding new ways to work and keep costs down, as well as technologies that can make us greener and safer. 

We’re also sharing our knowledge and views, as we believe that working with others in such a fast-changing industry helps keep us at the forefront of innovation, while benefitting the industry as a whole.
