SG Platform

Posted on 27/11/18.

The main target of the project is to prepare a group of R&D projects which will develop new solutions to the improvement of the reliability, flexibility and economy of electricity distribution networks and facilitate the connection of renewable power generation to the power system by applying energy storages, Big Data and analytics, IoT and 5G communication. Business models will also be developed, since the new solutions may lead to emerge of new businesses or change the operation environment of the existing export oriented industry.

The secondary objective of the project is to develop a new cooperation network. Within this network, a new research platform will be designed to serve the R&D&I needs of the companies. The network and the platform complement the other Finnish smart energy platforms, enable new global business in the branch undergoing a fundamental transition, and provide a framework for high quality national and international research cooperation.
