SweGRIDS is the Swedish Centre for Smart Grids and Energy Storage.
Started in December 2011, and completed in June 2022, it was a partnership of academia, industry and public utilities, with major funding from the
Swedish Energy Agency
and from corporate
that include major manufacturers and utilities.
The overarching purpose was to develop new and improved devices and methods that will help achieve the European Union’s ambitious targets for greater use of renewable energy sources and improved energy efficiency. Some one hundred scientists have worked within SweGRIDS, on development of electric power grids that can reliably and economically handle higher proportions of renewable generation and widespread energy trading. Sponsor companies have implemented some of the research results.
