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.

flexQgrid in the BMWi newsletter "Energiewende direkt

The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) has included our flexQgrid project as a successful example in the special edition of the newsletter "Energiewende direkt".

How to trade free grid capacity with your neighbours in flexQgrid?

In flexQgrid, the secondary market comes into play in the yellow traffic light phase, which occurs as soon as a potential congestion is forecasted. This offers all households, units and storage facilities in the affected grid area ("cluster") the opportunity to trade on a virtual marketplace despite a restrictive quota and thus also to feed in or consume more power from the grid than the quota specifies. 


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.
