Ventyx, an ABB company, has announced it is joining the development project entitled Smart Grid Gotland in Sweden. The project has begun in September 2012 and will run to December 2015.
The project has three overall objectives:
- cost efficiently increase the hosting capacity for wind power in an existing distribution system
- show that novel technology can improve the power quality in a rural grid with large quantities of installed wind power
- create possibilities for demand-side participation in the electricity market, in order to shift load from peak load hours to peak production hours.
