Upcoming amendments to Finland’s Electricity Market Act in 2028 will restrict the maximum limit for power outages, putting increased pressure on providers to ensure a consistent power supply. At the same time, overall energy consumption is increasing. Sundom Smart Grid provides a “living laboratory” through which to test and pilot the use of smart grid technology coupled with decentralised means of energy production, such as wind and solar power. The smart grid detects faults in the system and provides real-time data to the project partners through a fibre-optic network.
