Project flexQgrid

The grid of the future becomes real.

A sustainable power supply needs intelligent grids: The flexQgrid project funded by the BMWi 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.

Here we go! We successively start the one-year field test

On Friday, 27 August, the symbolic starting signal was given for the one-year field test.

Energy transition walk - Our attachment to Freiamt

Auf zum „Energiewende-Spaziergang“ und zur bemalten Trafostation: Das Forschungsprojekt flexQgrid im NETZlabor Freiamt verstärkt die Verbundenheit zur Region In unserer Gemeinde Freiamt gab es am Freitag, 18. Juni, gleich zwei große Highlights zu feiern: Die Bürgermeisterin von Freiamt, Hannelore Reinbold-Mench, hat zusammen mit der Netze BW-Projektleiterin vom NETZlabor Freiamt, Carmen Exner, den rund einen kilometerlangen „Energiewende-Spaziergang“ offiziell eingeweiht.


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.
