Enabling Smart Grid Technology
Changes in electricity management, such as the development of smart energy grids, will completely change the way we use and produce energy. VTT develops technologies that enable us to harness future possibilities. By pioneering effective, reliable, and secure ICT solutions for energy management, we enable new methods such as price-controlled consumption and distributed small-scale energy production.

The grid of the future consists of a broadly distributed and flexible target
system. Controlling the flow of energy most efficiently requires the use of
advanced telecommunication systems with wireless components. VTT is tackling
this problem with world-class knowledge of two-way communication with sensor
networks and machine-to-machine (M2M) components.
There are no complete real world smart grid test beds available to develop
best practices or find possible bottlenecks. VTT works with advanced modelling
and simulation tools that have proved their accuracy and reliability in
numerous demanding situations.
Is roaming electricity a possibility in the same way that roaming mobile
subscriptions are? Or could VTT’s smart card technology be used to pre-pay for
electricity for electric or plug-in hybrid cars? There are many new business
models to consider.
