We have just launched the website for the strategic development & demonstration project “Home24h – The smart home of tomorrow, for a comfortable and healthy living and working environment”.
Home24h is an integrative project for developing & demonstrating products (of renowned Slovene companies) used in the smart buildings of tomorrow, developing appropriate business models for marketing, and developing & demonstrating a new concept of living and working in a home in use 24 hours a day.
Considering the recent growing need for teleworking, the multimodal living concept – that allows users to use the building as both a home and a workplace at the same time – is particularly interesting.
At TECES we are very proud of our role in the Home24h project. We have been actively participating in the project since the initial outline and design of the partnership. We coordinated all activities to prepare the project proposal for the public call, and are now responsible for coordinating the project’s implementation, as well as monitoring its progress and meeting of targets.
We have successfully concluded the development & demonstration project “Demonstration of Integrated Energy Management (DEUP)”, demonstrating that introducing management systems is not only technologically significant but also economically viable.
The project also showed how a consortium of leading public and private companies in Slovenia – all with complementary skills – is able to develop joint solutions, which are capable of running alongside the most advanced services in the world market.
In TECES, we are proud of our role in the DEUP project, as we have been part of this project for its duration – from the development of the initial outline of the project and partnership to the preparation of the project proposal for the public call, the approval of the funding, implementation of the project and its successful completion. Rather than being partners in the consortium, we are the force which has successfully provided coordination support to all project partners in the implementation of development activities and the monitoring of the project’s progress towards the objectives set.
TECES s ciljem krepitve sinergije med člani in podpore aktivnostim na področjih delovanja partnerstva TECES / SRIP PSiDL usmerja 125.000 € v podporo teh aktivnosti. Podprte aktivnosti morajo biti skladne usmeritvam partnerstva na področjih krepitve skupnega razvoja in raziskav, razvojno strateških (dobavnih) verig vrednosti med nosilci verig, dobavitelji in uporabniki rešitev, internacionalizacije, mednarodnega sodelovanja in prepoznavnosti ter usposabljanja in izobraževanja zaposlenih.
The Home24h project is a perfect example of TECES' good practice in managing the successful cooperation of 12 Slovenian companies. Partners have used their complementary knowledge and experiences to implement newly developed, technologically advanced, but complementary solutions into a new concept of smart and sustainable construction. The green smart and connectable house will open its doors to the public in two months.
TECES has been proactively involved in the Dom24h project since the preparation of the project conceptual design, assembling the project partnership, and managing the preparation of the project proposal for the public call. Following the approved funding, TECES has taken on the role of project coordinator providing professional support to project partners for carrying out development activities, monitoring the progress, and achieving the project set goals.
The successfully completed pilot demonstration project "Integrated Energy Management Demonstration (DEUP)" is an example of the good practice of successful cooperation of 9 Slovenian public and private companies.
The complementary partners' knowledge has enabled the development of competitive and advanced integrated energy management services. The project aim was to develop solutions for the electricity flexibility market, the efficient monitoring and management of energy consumption in both industry and the water management infrastructure (utilities). Demonstration and testing of solutions confirmed that the introduction of energy management systems is not only technologically interesting but also economically justified.
TECES is proud of its role in the PD-DEUP project, as we have been proactively cooperating since the preparation of the conceptual design of the project and the partnership, as well as the preparation of the project proposal for the public tender. After the approved financing of the project, we took over the coordination and offered support to the project partners in the implementation of development activities, monitoring the progress of the project and achieving the set goals.
The "MODEL+, Demonstration of Smart Modular Construction, Connectivity, and Control for Next Generation Electric and Thermal Sources" project, is one of the SiEnE partnership's core pilot demonstration projects. It is part of the international strategic programme, Smart Energy Efficient and Energy Independent Dual-Use Camps.
The MODEL+ PD partnership is composed of leading Slovenian enterprises that are also members of the SiEnE partnership, where is REM d.o.o. (leading partner), DANFOSS Trata d.o.o., KRONOTERM d.o.o., PIKTRONIK d.o.o. and ROBOTINA d.o.o. represent project partners.
The project is coordinated by the TECES, Green Tech Cluster. The Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Slovenia (Si MoD) is participating as the infrastructure provider, responsible for testing and final demonstrations, as well as representing one of the end users of the project's final integrated solution.
The Ministry of Defence of RS (MoD) and TECES signed an agreement in late July 2020, establishing a Slovenian Energy and Environment Partnership in Defence (SiEnE).
The agreement is the result of months of MoD and TECES joint activity in looking for opportunities for civilian stakeholders to provide more comprehensive support to the MoD in addressing energy and environmental challenges in defence, and for ways to strengthen Slovenian partners’ involvement in the defence programs of the MoD, European Defence Agency (EDA) and NATO, as well as the global defence value chain.
On the 30th anniversary of independent Slovenia, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia (CCI) has prepared a selection of the most ground-breaking economic achievements. The project Home24h - Smart Home of the Future for a comfortable and healthy living environment, whose partnership is coordinated by TECES was also included.
TECES participated during the ideation of the ground-breaking project idea, establishment of consortium and coordination of the project application submission. The Slovenian CCI selection confirmed the importance of the project, which combines technological solutions of 12 Slovenian companies into a conceptual uniform building.
The project pursues the goals of sustainable construction and at the same time provides a smart, connectable, and user-friendly advanced living and working environment. The selection also confirms the 20 years long synergistic role of TECES as a link between companies and research organizations in creation of breakthrough projects.
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of independent Slovenia, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia set up an outdoor photographic exhibition, at which the Slovenia's economic progress during its independence is presented. TECES is proud that the project Home24h - Smart Home of the Future for a comfortable and healthy living environment is also included. The Home 24h is displayed on a large billboard on the platform in front of the CCI building entrance in Ljubljana.
We are extremely pleased that the importance of the Home24h project, which combines the technological solutions of 12 Slovenian companies into a conceptual and uniform building, has been recognized and confirmed in this way. On the one hand, project ensures sustainable construction, and on the other hand, a smart, connectable, and user-friendly advanced living and working environment is provided.
Home24h combines several modes under one roof: living in a single-family house, doing work from home, and active spending of free time. The residential building is fully energy and information managed and supplied, connected to the environment on several levels, represents the basic cell of electro-mobility, follows the goals of a net zero-energy building, built-in devices and appliances are connected to the cloud (Internet of Things) and digital twin. With these characteristics, the residential building can be integrated into smart energy contracting as part of the wider local environment.
Home24h represents a visionary solution for future living, especially in the light of climate changes, digitalization trends in the business world and private life, and last but not least in the light of epidemiological experiences.
The easing of the epidemiological situation enabled the Home24h consortium to hold the regular, now 21st meeting of the Project Council in the old manner, ie live. The Project Council is an important consultative body and includes representatives of all 12 partners. The TECES as project coordinator on a monthly basis provides the guidance and monitoring of the implementation of planned activities, follows the project objectives to achieve the set results.
As the coordinator we are proud that after 28 months of project implementation, the planned steps and the set plan is fully meet. Project management, of course, requires minor corrections as well as the management of any major tectonic shifts. However, the coordinator envisages all this in the risk management activities incorporated in the very logic of implementation of such a large and complex project.

Most of the construction, assembly and integrative works will be completed this year. Next year the activities that will ensure that Dom24h will truly be a smart home are to be completed. If we draw the line under the current project management, we can say that the Home24h project is successful and exemplary managed and coordinated by the TECES as coordinator in cooperation with the leading partner of Marles House Maribor, d.o.o.
The confirmation of stated was received at the Home24h building construction location. After a successful Project Council meeting the Home24h construction site was visited by the consortium for the first time. Under the expert guidance of Marles hiše Maribor, the partner representatives got acquainted with the current state of construction.
The building itself and its furnishings are very impressive and only on site they come to life. The object presented in the project documentation is something completely different than on site visit, where seeing and feeling already integrated solutions is possible.
We are already looking forward to witnessing the next phase and furnishing, when after a meeting in the business part of the building, in the residential part on the stove with built-in hood, we will make a coffee and drink it with our partners on the landscaped outdoor terrace.
V juniju 2019 je potekalo pod okriljem TECES nekaj ključnih dogodkov za ustanovitelje in člane. Namen je bil pregled dosedanje vloge TECES, predvsem pa želene ter pričakovane vloge v prihodnosti glede na interese in potrebe članov in ustanoviteljev. Te predstavljajo raznovrstni deležniki iz elektro in elektronske industrije, energetike in drugi ponudniki ter uporabniki energetsko učinkovitih rešitev. Ugotovljeno je, da se TECES uspešno prilagaja novo nastalim razmeram, vendar bo zaradi širine delovanja in vseobsegajočega prepletanja do sedaj relativno ločenih panog, nujna krepitev aktivnosti na ožje fokusiranih področij, kjer lahko dosežemo največji učinek povezovanja deležnikov. Posebno pozornost bo potrebno nameniti vseobsegajoči digitalizaciji produktov in povezovanju z raznimi panožnimi in drugimi združenji.
