FME CINELDI – Annual Report 2023

Realising the electricity grid of the future

Read more →


CINELDI enables a cost-efficient realisation of the future flexible and robust electricity distribution system by developing new concepts, technologies and solutions. By providing new visionary smart grid-solutions and testing them in laboratory and real-life environments, the knowledge and experience gained helps grid companies, the system operator, manufacturers and ICT companies to develop and integrate new technologies and work processes, stimulating innovations.

Our contribution to a more sustainable world

Electrification of society may provide more than 30 % of the potential CO2 emission reductions. It is therefore highlighted as one of the most important climate actions world-wide. Our work supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals shown above.

Research and Results

Our research is performed across four main disciplines: electric power engineering, cybernetics, information technology, and communication technology. These are further supported by social sciences in order to analyse social economics and consumer behavior related to flexibility.

The research activities are organized in six research areas, represented by the six WPs. The WPs reflect the main aspects of power system operation and management. This ensures that each WP addresses research questions that are highly relevant to both industry and society. Furthermore, it enables academic partners to work in close collaboration across the disciplines. It also facilitates interaction and communication between partners from research and industry alike.

Multidisciplinary research platform

CINELDI’s research is based on a multidisciplinary platform consisting of three pillars: research and development, laboratory tests and pilot projects. Through basic and applied research, CINELDI’s researchers provide in-depth knowledge, methods, and tools that are then tested in laboratories, simulated environments, and small-scale field pilots (living labs).

Active utilisation of use-case methodology and research infrastructure is an important part of both the research strategy and the multidisciplinary research platform. By using the Norwegian Smart Grid Laboratory and living labs hosted by user partners and laboratory tests, we integrate active involvement from the industry partners into our research activities.
