The transition from fossil to emissions-free transport will require extensive electrification of the transport sector. Charging of aircrafts, buses and ships will increase the demand for electricity.

In order to succeed in electrification of the transport system without creating a capacity problem, we need knowledge sharing, technology transfer and partnerships. Elnett21 aims to facilitate an emission-free and electric transportation system - and contribute to optimal use of existing grids through local production, storage and management of energy.

Through this demo, we will develop solutions to meet the increased need for power. In this way, the parties can produce and exchange self-produced energy, while at the same time becoming robust in terms of power needs at a time when consumption is increasing. Elnett21 will show that we can achieve better utilization of resources by having larger players collaborate on solutions adapted to needs and consumption.

FACTS:

Elnett21 was started in 2019 and will end in 2024.

Total estimated budget: 110 MNOK, og which Enova contributes 40 MNOK to Elnett21.
