SINTEF Energy Research announced a demonstration project, the EcoGrid EU, a €21 million EU project that is being coordinated in Trondheim by SINTEF. Sixteen partners from ten countries are members of the project. The project will raise the ceiling for how far an electricity grid can utilize unpredictable sources such as wind and sun.

According to senior researcher Ove Grande at SINTEF Energy, the results of the project will be directly transferable, not only to wind-power nations and nations that are investing heavily in solar electric power, but to all countries that are planning "smart" electricity grids.
