The project will also:

  1. Describe existing knowledge, experience and application related to energy storage in the distribution grid
  2. Evaluate alternative business models using energy storage, given current frameworks and regulations and any needed adjustments to these
  3. Demonstrate and verify the use and integration of energy storage in the Norwegian distribution grid
  4. Evaluate the cost / benefit for the actors involved, based on experience from demonstration activities
  5. Establish a methodology / guide to how energy storage can be utilized and integrated into the Norwegian distribution grid
