Energy Systems

The production, distribution and use of electrical energy changes rapidly from major centralized systems to more decentralized solutions with different players throughout the value chain. With modern information and communication solutions (ICT), new opportunities emerges for efficient and reliable energy-, information- and business -processes. At UiO we study how we can exploit ICT to increase integration of renewable and distributed energy sources by making energy systems smarter, and to increase energy efficiency. Another key research area is stochastic analysis, statistics and probabilyt theory used to develop new and novel insight in risk management and new energy markets that are undergoing rapic change both nationally and globally.
