General Information

Gabreta Smart Grids aims to accelerate the digitization of the distribution grid by fostering the cross-border cooperation between Germany and the Czech Republic.

Increasing numbers of renewable energy sources, electric mobility, and advances in sector coupling, as well as better service and more comfort for citizens all depend on a modern, resilient and digitized grid, especially on the distribution system level.

Gabreta Smart Grids will foster these goals by developing a practical vision of how to fast-track the deployment of digital technologies to the distribution grid. In addition to a cross-border interconnection between Germany and the Czech Republic, the grid will be upgraded by smart elements accommodating it for the further integration of renewable energy sources and the ongoing decentralization of energy system. This will allow for a better connection of grid users, providing them with higher security and quality of supply. Gabreta Smart Girds will prepare the electricity grid for a connected, resilient and sustainable energy future in Europe.

“Gabreta” is a Celtic expression for the Bavarian/Bohemian forest region that straddles the German-Czech border. It symbolizes the spirit of cross-border cooperation and connection of the project.
