CINELDI is a Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research, financed by The Research Council of Norway and the partners in the project.

CINELDI develops the electricity grid of the future.

CINELDI works towards digitalising and modernising the electricity distribution grid for higher efficiency, flexibility and resilience.

CINELDI enables a cost-efficient realisation of the future flexible and robust electricity distribution grid.

Our research comprises the fields of electric power engineering, cybernetics, information technology and communication technology. It also incorporates social sciences to understand the real-life applications of these technologies. International collaboration takes place through various fora and through research projects. 

Our innovations aim to considerably reduce total distribution system costs, and leverage business opportunities for technology providers in both national and international markets. CINELDI also focuses on increasing the knowledge, strengthening education, and international collaboration within our fields of research.

In the pilot projects we test and verify technologies and solutions for the future intelligent electricity distribution system. In real environments.

CINELDI develops knowledge, methods, and tools which will be tested in laboratories, simulated environments, and field pilots. The pilot projects are as such important parts of CINELDI and are an integrated part of the research and development in the FME. The pilot projects support the objectives and vision of CINELDI as well as the scenarios for the future distribution system developed in WP6. Pilot projects in CINELDI shall contribute to develop cost-efficient solutions and innovation on the system level of the future electricity distribution system of 2030-2040.
