The electricity industry is in a paradigm shift, with a rapidly growing number of electric cars and data centers and increased opportunities to disconnect from power grids in favor of so-called micronetics. The Great Northern in Skellefteå was filled with over 100 people in the audience when the speakers Professor Math Bollen from Luleå University of Technology and Magnus Brodin from Skellefteå kraft looked into what the future has in mind regarding power grids.
Will the power grids cope with the load in the future as more and more people start charging their cars after work? Will electricity networks even be needed if more people start producing their own electricity via solar panels?
