The Smartest, Greenest Grid⁰

The Smartest, Greenest Grid⁰

, though, the most attractive thing about Bornholm isn’t the beaches or the sun: It’s that pesky undersea cable, or, more important, what that cable allows him as a power engineer to do. Østergaard, a professor of electrical engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) , in Lyngby, is involved in a number of electricity projects on Bornholm, including EcoGrid. The cable can be switched off at will, he explains, putting the Bornholm grid into what’s known in electricity circles as “island” mode. And that’s interesting, he says, because the wealth of wind power makes the Bornholm grid challenging to operate and fascinating to study. Last year, he and his colleagues even built a duplicate of the Østkraft control room on the DTU campus to monitor the Bornholm grid in real time.
