This project developed an innovation leader’s guide to help utilities implement successful innovation programs. The objectives of the project were to (1) equip utilities to assess and encourage broad engagement in innovation, (2) provide guidance for building powerful innovation partnerships for early wins, (3) develop an Innovation Planning Tool for building an innovation strategy, and (4) develop detailed case studies that demonstrate the innovation strategy. Reports published in 2023.
As of October 2023, the Innovation Planning Tool is still in development.
