The Dutch pilot phase of the InterConnect project has officially begun in Eindhoven. A 22-story building, named Next, has been constructed to house 160 apartments for residents to participate in the trial.

The building utilises smart technology, powered by the Knowledge Engine, ReFLEX and SAREF, to efficiently manage appliances based on user preferences and energy tariffs. This innovative approach contributes to the European Green Deal by absorbing excess energy during peak times, making room for more sustainable energy sources, and reducing overall energy costs for residents.
