The reduction of climate gas emissions is a global challenge. A key response to the challenge is the transformation of traditional electric power systems and electricity use to a smarter and more renewable smartgrid infrastructure.

Our Goals Are 

  • To improve the energy/power efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy sources
  • To motivate electricity users (industry, households etc.) to activly change their electricity use patterns
