Scenarios describing smart grid technologies applied to electricity distribution systems

Abstract

This paper describes a set of future scenarios, reflecting the
views and visions regarding smart grid of Norwegian
distribution network companies, ICT (Information and
communication technology) companies, manufacturing
industry, and research and educational institutions. The
scenarios are based on a series of workshops held in a
national project, the DeVID project (Demonstration and
Verification of Intelligent Distribution networks), aimed at
demonstrating new smart grid technologies and methods for
distribution networks. The DeVID project has performed
the scenario process to establish a future outlook, and to
pinpoint major challenges and opportunities related to the
smart grids development and deployment. The results from
the study provide a common understanding and knowledge
platform for further research, testing and verification in the
project.
