Interoperable Solutions Connecting Smart Homes, Buildings and Grids

Start date: 01.10.2019

Duration: 48 months

Coordinator: INESC TEC

Budget: 36 M€


The EU energy market is conditioned by digitalisation. New rules and technological developments allow the proliferation of energy service providers in the EU member states with users having full knowledge and control over their appliances. However, interoperability represents a serious problem as a change of provider could mean the replacement of installations. InterConnect project proposes effective energy management using a resilient and practical ecosystem that is user-centric and market-driven. The project involves a range of specialised stakeholders, including advanced technology actors, manufacturers, providers and energy users. Via seven pilots, they will showcase an effective digital market for ensuring energy-efficiency at reduced costs that is beneficial to end-users.

InterConnect gathers 51 European entities to develop and demonstrate advanced solutions for connecting and converging digital homes and buildings with the electricity sector. The main goal? Bringing efficient energy management within reach of the end-users by interoperable Solutions Connecting Smart Homes, Buildings and Grids.
