Norwegian Smartgrid Center joins GSGF

Greentech Lead Europe: Norwegian Smartgrid Center has
joined the Global Smart Grid Federation (GSGF), an international collaborative
effort among national and regional smart grid associations.

 The Norwegian Smartgrid Center is a coalition of
diverse companies representing the electric R&D communities, systems
operators, and technology providers, leading efforts in research, teaching,
business development and commercialization to make the Norwegian electric industry
more competitive in the global community.

“Norway will play a crucial role in Europe’s
ambitious plans to enable long term, sustainable economic growth by overhauling
its energy system. Not only does Norway have a diversified and rich energy
portfolio, many believe that Norway’s reservoirs will become Europe’s ‘green
battery’, balancing power as an increasing amount of intermittent renewable
energy sources will come on line,” said Guido Bartels, GSGF chairman.

The Norwegian Smartgrid Center is the 12th member of the
GSGF. It is nearing to complete its Norwegian Smart grid Laboratory,
which will have a direct impact on the direction of the global smart grid

“The Norwegian Smartgrid Center is thrilled to be
joining the Global Smart Grid Federation. Joining the GSGF will enable us to
communicate the challenges and successes we experience domestically and learn
how other nations are tackling similar energy challenges,” said Jan
Onarheim, manager of the Center.
