Project flexQgrid

The grid of the future becomes real.

A sustainable power supply needs intelligent power grids: The flexQgrid project funded by the BMWK is developing innovative solutions for the integration of renewable energies and is thus shaping the power grid of the future. The number of decentralized generation units and the number of new consumers - such as electromobility - are increasing. That is why we are focusing on the use of smart grid technologies already today in the field test area to develop the energy world of tomorrow. In this way, we guarantee a high level of supply security in the future as well.

Project Details

  • Project Duration: November 2019 – October 2022 (3 years)
  • 9 partners from grid operation, industry and science
  • 1-year field test from summer 2021

Our Mission

We connect all players within the energy processes and test our solution in real-life in cooperation with citizens.
We enable the energy transitionby integrating a maximum of renewable energies into the grid.
We integrate all decentralised units and continue to guarantee secure grid operation.

Who is actually behind the field test? Who are the over 40 field test participants in Freiamt? Curious?

Surveys in the project as a valuable tool for determining individual impressions

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), which is involved in the field test with the Chair of Energy Economics, among others, will conduct surveys among the participants in the field test during the project.


Developing the grid of the future together.We are working on our solutions in a strong consortium of nine partners for the next three years to make the grid of the future a reality. The partners from the fields of grid operation, industry and science yield years of expertise in their respective fields to the project. The individual elements - components and players in the energy world - are thus optimally combined to create a joint solution for the future grid.
