The project CrossEnergy focuses on the future design of the power network infrastructure with strong emphasis on the cross-border cooperation. The project joins three international partners from Czech-Bavaria border region in order to establish highly qualified research infrastructure, which covers research fields (Forecasting, Planning, and Operation) necessary for the development of planning tools for regional power network infrastructure.

Figure bellow graphically captures particular research fields in the context of power networks. Two already deployed distribution power networks on the opposite border sides are colored by black and grid extensions are depicted by brown color.


Planning of the power network extension includes several steps, where are covered by the functionalities of particular modules.

Forecasting module

Planning module Operation module Project modules/parts/partners - Forecasting, Planning Operation (link with picture above)

The main technical objective of the project is to create a decision support tool considering demographic changes, technological trends, and regulatory policies in border regions for future design of (cross) border energy infrastructure enabled by economically reasonable, technically safe and societally acceptable measures.
