Introducing variable distributed generation (DG) will increase the need for flexibility in the grid. The development of a flexible energy system is crucial to realise energy and climate targets and to ensure security of supply in Norway and Europe. To obtain this, flexibility on the distribution level such as battery banks, generation units and dispatchable loads are crucial.

CINELDI aims to develop methods and models for cost effective integration of flexible resources in smart distribution grids, and to develop concepts and solutions for utilizing flexible resources in different market products and ancillary services. To achieve this, different technologies and market options needs to be tested and verified in real environments.
