Statkraft to Grimstad

We started our day with a quick train ride to the Statkraft location in Oslo. Here, we heard about a few different sides of the hydro power plant, including research and design, economics and trading, and their development.
We started our day with a quick train ride to the Statkraft location in Oslo. Here, we heard about a few different sides of the hydro power plant, including research and design, economics and trading, and their development. Statkraft, with other partners, is in the middle of construction of Europe's largest Onshore Wind Power Plant Project. It will consist of 6 wind farms containing a total of 278 turbines. This would be enough electricity to power 170,000 Norwegian homes!


We wrapped up our time at Statkraft with a lecture on the Smart Grid, which would allow for two-way information exchange about power usage between homeowners and the distributors. From there, we took a bus to our next stop, Grimstad. Most students spent the night exploring the University of Agder, where we'll be staying for the next few nights.
