Our prioritised projects

At Statnett, we have a portfolio of around 60 research and development projects that represent an investment totalling NOK 1.7 billion.

Each year Statnett invests time and money equivalent to roughly NOK 80 million in R&D activities, but for many of the projects we also receive financial support from external sources, such as the Research Council of Norway, the EU, NER 300 and Norway’s tax incentive scheme for R&D, SkatteFUNN.

In addition, we work closely with other companies and organisations on a large number of these projects, and therefore share the costs with our partners. In line with our strategy, the benefit to us of our R&D projects is a more efficient, smarter and more secure Statnett. Digitalisation is a key area in the bulk of our R&D projects.
