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.
iFleks, a pilot project concerning price sensitivity is conducted by Statnett, with CINELDI participation in the project reference group.
Active homes (Finalised)
A smart grid is not only about using newer, smarter technology such as sensors, machine learning and batteries to increase security of supply and grid flexibility.
Fast Frequency Reserve (Finalised)
Batteries will become a key component in the future smart distribution grid. For example, they can provide voltage support, or as we will test in this pilot, provide reserve capacity to the grid.
NODES flexibility platform
Grid flexibility and distributed energy production changes the premiss for buying and selling power.
Optimisation of local balancing with battery
Together with Skagerak Energi, CINELDI is running a pilot at Skagerak Energilab. The lab is a unique large-scale pilot facility for local generation (PVs) and storage of electrical energy.
Batteries as voltage support
Under-dimensioned power grids can cause power quality issues for customers and trigger large investments for grid companies.
