The project is building a national SmartGrid laboratory at NTNU Elkraft, which can be used for lab tests of Smart Grid elements, processes/use cases and equipment. NCE Smart, in partnership with eSmart Systems, is responsible for the development of a Remote Access platform which will make it possible to run lab tests from across the whole country.

The purpose of the project is to establish a test facility for industrial products and innovative/smart solutions, identify simulation models for components of active distribution grids, to make it possible to educate engineers all over the country and conduct further research in Smart Grid technology. The goal is to increase the quality of Smart Grid elements and equipment and to roll out smart meters to all Norwegian households before 2019. The goal is to increase quality in processes and procedures attached to Smart Grid implementation projects.
