About the project

  • The aim of the Danube InGrid (Danube Intelligent Grid) is to integrate more renewables to the distribution grid by the application of smart technologies and manage them in a smarter way along with keeping the security and high quality of supply for the electricity consumers in the CEE region.
  • Project Danube InGrid will adopt smart grid technologies both internally and on cross border level for the evolvement of modern energy infrastructure. It will efficiently integrate the behavior and actions of all market users connected to the electricity network, mainly consumers, prosumers and generators with the goal of integration of large amounts of electricity from renewable and/or distributed energy sources. Gaining and utilising experience in smart technologies in North Western Hungary and Western Slovakia, will be beneficial for electricity system users and distribution and transmission system operators.
  • The Danube InGrid project is on the current PCI list of the European Union
  • The Danube InGrid project is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) of the European Union.
  • Project value: EUR 291 million
  • CEF co-financing: EUR 102 million
  • Implementation period: 2020 – 2025
