This include a wide range of technologies that transform electric energy into other forms of energy that may be storaged or used.
Digital transition is gradually becoming more important in shaping the energy system of the future. There is a need for developing digital energy solutions that support the development of more flexible, integrated and market based energy systems in which consumers play a novel and more central role, and where intelligence is increasingly build into the systems single components.
Innovative technologies that in a short or long term perspective lead to implementation of new technologies and processes or combine known technologies and processes in a new and value adding way. In other words, new innovative technologies, solutions and services with a large global market potential.
