/PRNewswire/ -- The Global Smart Grid Federation
(GSGF), an international collaborative effort among national and regional smart
grid associations, today announced that Norwegian Smartgrid Centre has joined
the Federation. The Norwegian Smartgrid Centre is a coalition of diverse
companies representing the electric R&D communities, systems operators, and
technology providers, leading efforts in research, teaching, business
development and commercialization to make the Norwegian electric industry

"The Norwegian Smartgrid Centre is a superb addition to the rapidly growing
Global Smart Grid Federation.
Norway
will play a crucial role in
Europe
's
ambitious plans to enable long term, sustainable economic growth by
overhauling its energy system. Not only does
Norway
have a diversified and
rich energy portfolio, many believe that
Norway
's reservoirs will become
Europe
's 'green battery', balancing power as an increasing amount of
intermittent renewable energy sources will come on line," said Guido Bartels,
GSGF Chairman. "The work planned by the Centre and its soon to be completed
Norwegian Smart grid Laboratory, will have a direct impact on the direction of
the global smart grid community," he added.
"The Norwegian Smartgrid Centre is thrilled to be joining the Global Smart Grid
Federation," said Jan Onarheim, Manager of the Centre. "
Norway
is
transitioning to a more intelligent electricity system. The use of innovative
communications and smart grid technologies will be keys to the success of this
energy transformation. Joining the GSGF will enable us to communicate the
challenges and successes we experience domestically and learn how other
nations are tackling similar energy challenges."
The Norwegian Smartgrid Centre is the 12th member of the GSGF, joining
Danish Intelligent Energy Alliance, EDSO for Smart Grids (European Union),
GridWise Alliance (U.S.), India Smart Grid Forum, Israeli Smart Energy
Association, Japan Smart Community Alliance, Korea Smart Grid Association,
Smart Grid Australia, Smart Grid Canada, Smart Grid GB (
Great Britain
), and
Smart Grid Ireland.
