Innovation and research

Ever since Landsnet’s inception over a decade ago, research, innovation and development have been prime drivers of the grid’s development and management, the aims being twofold: to ensure a secure supply of electricity to Iceland’s general population and businesses and to minimise the visual impact of transmission infrastructure to the extent possible. The initial focus was on the design and development of transmission lines. In recent years, however, the focus has shifted to research and development relating to underground cables and electricity system management.
