Analyses and studies

  • Analyses in cooperation with academic institutions
  • Applied research with regard to the distribution network

The electricity distribution network is a vital services infrastructure, and the investments in it are considerable and are for decades to come. The planning of the network is influenced by the rapid development of technology, changes in electricity production and consumption patterns, and economic and demographic trends. To make good decisions, it is increasingly important to involve research and development, as pointed out by the European electricity industry union Eurelectric in its recommendations, a brief summary of which is provided in this newsletter.

Elektrilevi began to cooperate more systematically with research institutions in the first half of the 2000s, when it identified the most critical asset groups for value creation in the distribution network together with the Lappeenranta University in Finland. Later, Tallinn University of Technology conducted a series of studies on certain aspects of asset insurance, and with the help of the University of Tartu, a management standard for asset-related projects was developed.

Elektrilevi also cooperates with academic institutions by attracting trainees, and where possible, provides the information necessary for preparing energy-related dissertations. We also publish final reports on commissioned applied research and analyses.
