We are now looking for project proposals for 2019 with startup in 2020 as described in the Invitation to Tender. Please note that there will be an Tender conference, and that ellen.sande@statnett.no is single point of contact for this Tender.

In 2020 Statnett enters a new program-period that will last from 2020 until 2023. Focus areas are based on Statnett's strategy, the strategies of Energi21, ENTSO-E, the Nordic TSO-reports "Nordic Challenges" and "Nordic Solutions", and strategic guidelines from OED and NVE. The programs for the next period are:

  • Data-driven decision support in realtime
  • Digital, safe and cost effective systems
  • Interaction in a fully electrified Norway

We urge everyone who works within the electrical power sector to submit their project proposals to us. Use our special form to submit your R&D project proposal. 


Where Statnett contributes to a project’s funding, we must, at the very least, be entitled to use any results deriving from the project concerned. This does not include background information.

Where Statnett funds a project in its entirety, we may wish to hold the copyright to any results deriving from the project concerned.

The contract must be signed no later than three months after all parties have agreed that the project shall be initiated. No project may be initiated unless a contract has been drawn up and signed by all parties.


Project proposals to be considered in 2019 need to be sent in before April 30th. Only proposals submitted via our project proposal form will be considered.

See the Research Council of Norway’s website for details of their announcements.
