In recent years, Lyse and Statnett have been working to establish a new electricity supply to the region. Sør-Rogaland is one of the areas in the country with the worst electricity supply reliability.
Smartly is Lyse's new focus on making the home safer, simpler and more eco-friendly. The customer controls the lighting, heating, alarm and many more home functions from a single remote control in a tablet computer or smartphone.
Lyse is building a new hydroelectric power plant in Lysebotn that will replace the current power plant. The new power plant uses existing reservoirs and dams, but utilises the resources better and thus increases the generation of renewable energy. This is one of the biggest hydroelectric power projects in Norway.
Triangulum is Stavanger, Manchester and Eindhoven's joint project under EU's Horizon 2020 programme to develop smart solutions for a sustainable urbanisation in the future.
Pursuant to the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate's regulation relating to AMS (automatic measurement systems), Lyse will be visiting all of its over 140,000 mains customers to install a new automatic electricity meter by 1 January 2019.
Lyse aims to utilise the potential for profitable developments within hydroelectric power. In addition to the new power plant in Lysebotn several smaller projects are being reviewed. To qualify for the electricity certificate scheme the projects must be put into production during the course of 2020.
