|Objective|| DESSI is a new infrastructure for modelling, emulation, monitoring and controlling of the electrical grid. DESSI covers simulations, emulations and cybersecurity of power systems, ranging from micro-, macro- to regional energy systems. To counteract the climate crisis and stay below 1.5 deg C temperature increase requires a massive transitive from energy to electrical systems.
DESSI will develop the physical system and computational methods necessary to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of power systems with large-scale renewable generation, flexible loads, storage devices, power flow control and security of cyber-physical systems. DESSI will include physical components such as
Besides the physical & virtual infrastructure, DESSI will also connect 80-100 houses and report the energy consumption. The high-resolutions energy data are collected per fuse and every 10 s to create a research data-base as a basis for the energy transition in households.

Overview presentation Media:2210DESSI-infrastruktur.pdf
- The worldwide commitment to stay within 1.5oC temperature increase requires a massive transitive from energy to electrical systems
- For Norway, it means creating roughly 70 TWh of new electric energy in the upcoming years, which is about half of the yearly usage of 150 TWh
- Regulations such as the electrification of building places (mandatory in 2023 for Trondheim, in 2024 for Oslo), has resulted in start-ups like UiO’s collaboration partner Nordic Booster to provide battery containers for building sites.
- Increased production from private households (“prosumer”) and industrial buildings (mainly PV)
- Lack of independent high-resolution electrical data, measuring on fuse level in individual households/buildings
- Islands like Utsira are already test-arenas for micro-grids, though lack the detailed modelling including buildings
- Vulnerability of electrical cyber-physical systems against cyber-attacks
- Empower customers with insight, privacy-aware and decentralised energy control solutions.
- Use the leading position of Norwegian SMEs in power systems to expand worldwide
