If ferries, data centers, and oil platforms are willing to lose power during peak hours, they must be able to connect to the grid faster. -Oil and Energy Minister Tina Bru (Tina Bru) said this can help make better use of the grid.
government The regulations are now being revised Make it easier and faster to connect to the power source.
The government stated that this change is positive for grid customers such as grid companies and data centers, charging stations and industrial companies.
This change means that network companies do not have to make the necessary network upgrade investments before connecting new users to the network, as it has so far.
The prerequisite is that the grid company and the customer reach an agreement, and the customer agrees that if it needs to ensure that the grid can operate stably, it can throttle or cut off the power completely.
It may take years to strengthen or upgrade the network to promote higher consumption in a certain area, and may make industrial companies prefer to establish their position elsewhere.
Oil and Energy Minister Hina said to E24 that this measure will help avoid the establishment of new networks and allow players to get faster and cheaper internet connections.
The minister pointed out that many participants want to connect to the network, and many people worry that this will take time and require expensive network development.
NVE currently has 300 actors who wish to contact online to apply, and require actors to do more work before applying.
Brue is currently studying extensive energy information, while also considering the need for restructuring and new green jobs.
-We are studying how to make the process of all parties more flexible. This change is part of this work. We must find ways to reduce the time of network connection. Bru said that this will also be part of the energy report to be submitted later this year.
The changes made by Tina Bru now will mean that the grid company can reach an agreement with customers that they can connect to the grid with disconnected or reduced power.
Even if the power is disconnected, the customer will not receive any compensation. If the customer wants to have full access to the network in the future, the customer will have to pay construction fees for any upgrades to the network.
