Power line monitoring for increased resilience

Supporting the green transition by increased power line flexibility

Power line monitoring for increased resilience

One key factor in the ongoing green transition is the increased demand for timely and uninterrupted flow of electrical energy. Unfortunately, the regional power networks of the sparsely populated Interreg Aurora areas are often not set to handle the large transmission requirements stemming from for example high power chargers or solar and wind power generation.

The objective of the Interreg Aurora funded small-scale project Power line monitoring for increased resilience is to gain knowledge, gather a consortium, and formulate a following full scale project, wherein implementation as well as development and research on technologies for power line monitoring will be performed. The expectation is that such full scale project will contribute stable power transfer capacity for rural municipalities, and thus increased resilience and possibility for these to participate in the ongoing green transition.
