CINELDI will ensure that we are building the smart energy system of the future
- CINELDI will contribute to designing the future's flexible and robust electrical distribution grid at an acceptable cost.
- CINELDI will facilitate renewable energy, electrification of transport and more efficient use of energy.
CINELDI will develop a knowledge base for electrical grid operators and authorities to establish good strategies for the future distribution grid.
This will provide:
- More efficient grid operations
- Reduced costs for investments and operations
- Future-oriented regulation of utility companies, to ensure the socially efficient development and operation of the power grid.
CINELDI will also provide new business opportunities for technology providers:
- New products and services
- Development of commercial solutions
- Strengthening of national and international competitiveness
- Increased visibility and recruitment
Duration: 2016 - 2024
Budget: 360 million NOK
SINTEF Energy Research is heading the programme in cooperation with NTNU.

The scheme of the Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) seeks to develop expertise and promote innovation through focus on long-term research in selected areas of environment-friendly energy. There are today 11 centres within renewable energy, energy efficiency, social sciences and CO2-management. The research activity is carried out in close cooperation between prominent research communities and users. The centres will operate for eight years (2016 – 2024).
