Fields and Projects

We intend to establish a platform for international knowledge, a catalyst for innovative solutions and approaches, applied to the planning and operation of transmission power. 

Audacity to create, to innovate. We are focused on finding and developing solutions that can contribute to change the future of the energy sector. 

In R&D NESTER projects, we are focused on the following areas: simulation of electrical power systems; management of renewable energy; technologies for smart grids; and in the energy markets and economics. 

This further expands into topics such as flexibility, demand side management, storage, analytics for energy systems, digitalization of power systems, and others relevant for the ongoing Energy Transition.

Because we believe in knowledge and innovation, we challenge you to share with us ideas and projects within these 4 areas. 

Remember ..... a project today may be a reality tomorrow.
