Approved by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme

InterConnect gathers 50 European entities to develop and demonstrate advanced solutions for connecting and converging digital homes and buildings with the electricity sector.


The project places the foundation for the future of smart energy management solutions by seven connected large-scale test-sites in Portugal, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece and France.

The main goal? Bringing efficient energy management within reach of the end-users.

Large-scale pilots leading to market driven deployments

Marketplace of integrated digital platforms bridging the gap between Iot and energy

Establish interoperability framework validating SAREF and semantic interoperability

User centric energy and non-energy services

Expected Results

The solutions developed within the scope of InterConnect will allow a digitalisation of homes, buildings and electric grids based on an Internet of Things (IoT) architecture.

By including digital technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Cloud and Big Data) based on open standards, such as SAREF, it will guarantee the interoperability between equipment, systems and privacy/cybersecurity of user data.

Who has the opportunity to take advantage of these solutions?

  • Energy users in buildings
  • Manufacturers
  • Distribution grid operators
  • Energy Retailers
