Thea Øverli graduated from NTNU in 2018 with a master’s degree in Energy and Environmental Engineering.
Now working as a Senior engineer in development and analysis at Lede AS.
Masters’ thesis: Consumer flexibility as a resource in the power system of the future
The power system can be utilised much better than today; copper and steel are not always the best solution to a capacity problem. At Lede, I was assigned tasks within flexibility due to my background from CINELDI. My experience from CINELDI opened many doors, and the perspectives I learned from my time there was useful in the more practical work at the power grid company.
What I like about my job is that I can contribute to social development through Norway's most important infrastructure. That is very rewarding, especially in the times we live in now. I have been given an opportunity for development and responsibility at Lede, which I value enormously. What I like best about my job is probably the working environment, which is social and inclusive, young and yet very competent.
CINELDI’s work is very relevant for us in Lede. The distribution grid in our area, is full, and there is an enormous demand for new capacity. It will take a long time to expand the current electricity grid. That’s why we need to look at other solutions to make better use of the grid.
