Power grid 2.0

Part 1: No wind power without power grids

The Swedish national grid is faced with a need for significant reinvestment, while its capacity needs to be expanded in order to facilitate the increased renewable electricity generation. Long processing times, bottlenecks between electricity areas, the shutdown of nuclear power and the setting up of server halls make the challenge even greater. How do we ensure that it is not the power grid that limits the expansion of renewable electricity generation?

Part 2: Intelligent integration of renewable energy 

Sweden has some of the best conditions in Europe for the integration of large amounts of renewably generated electricity – but are they sufficient enough to achieve a one hundred percent renewable electricity system? What are the challenges and what must be done to make it work?
