Abstract
The future grid anno 2040 will be a complex system-of-systems, incorporating various intelligent devices for monitoring, control and automation. On the cyber-physical electricity distribution system level, the interaction between various technological, economic, organisational and human factors add complexity which need to be addressed in a holistic and coordinated way to support the system innovation. To better understand the complexity of the future distribution grid, the driving forces for system innovation have been identified and structured, for the Norwegian grid. Based on the driving forces, a repository of 109 mini scenarios has been developed. This paper describes the foresight process, the structure of the driving forces and show examples of mini scenarios and their impact on the future development of the distribution grid. Further it gives some insight into how the DSOs can prepare for the uncertain future by utilising the knowledge gained from this work.
