Research and development, laboratory tests and pilot projects constitute the multidisciplinary platform CINELDI’s research is based on. 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).

Methodology, infrastructure, and disciplines

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.

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