Reliable Electricity Supply

With new conditions for production and consumption electricity grids also face new challenges. To meet these challenges the design of our grids needs to advance and new strategies need to be implemented.

Increasing and variable flows in the electricity grid along with higher rates of integration and interconnection of different energy sources create new challenges for a secure and reliable transmission and distribution of electricity. In our programmes we manage research focusing on developing new technologies, new market solutions, new services, and sustainable development.

Distribution of electricity is a topic that under the last years have become of increasing focus as different societal changes are impacting the power system. Energiforsk initiate research looking at topics such as improved use of hardware in the grid or business models and digital solutions. Together with transmission system operators we ensure a reliable grid that can offer new services with high operational security.
