Demonstration of Integrated Energy Management (DEUP)
Smartis is a member of a consortium, which consists of 9 partners, companies and public organizations. These are Petrol, Kolektor Sisteh, Iskratel, Javno podjetje Komunala Idrija, Komunalno podjetje Ptuj, Inštitut za vodarstvo, Solvera Lynx and Slovenska industrija jekla.
The aim of the project is the technical and economic optimization of the water supply system with an emphasis on reducing the use of electricity. Active integration of consumption, advanced consumption response management and energy management will be implemented in pilot demonstration project involving major industrial customers (iron, automotive and electrical industries with ICT) and plumbing systems.
Within the consortium, SmartIS focuses on energy optimization of plumbing systems.

Smart home of the future for a comfortable and healthy living and working environment (Home24h)
Smartis is a member of a consortium in which participate 12 recognizable and breakthrough Slovenian companies, namely Marles Hiše Maribor, Petrol, Gorenje, Alples, ETI, Danfoss Trata, JUB, Helios, TBPLUS, Intectiv, Robotina, Smartis and Špica International.
The primary goal of the project is to develop a new concept of living in a home, which we use 24 hours a day, and to present the subsystems and products for smart buildings of the future. The project will be a residential building that will be implemented at the headquarters of Marles Hiše Maribor. It will be the modern living facility of the future.
It will enable the performance of work at home, provide comprehensive energy and information supply for the building and basic energy needs for the mobility of the users of the building.
The facility will be supplied with electricity obtained from the sun, which can be stored in the facility and provide the necessary energy for the means of transport of users of the facility, and surplus energy will either be stored in storage, electric batteries or transmitted to the open network. The building will be energy self-sufficient and will operate on the concept of a net zero-energy building. It will be built with using top-quality insulation materials. The system of controlled ventilation of the building will also contribute to the stated level of energy saving.
The facility will be equipped with smart devices and furniture, which will be integrated into a unified information system for smart home management. The facility is designed in BIM technology and will thus provide all stakeholders with the necessary information for its maximum comfortable and efficient use through the design, implementation and use phase, which will be monitored throughout the entire life cycle by its digital twin.

The investment is co-financed by Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European regional development fund.
The project creates opportunities for a smart transition of municipalities and regions in mountainous areas through new forms of stakeholder involvement facilitated by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
Alpine space rural communities are deprived of highly needed jobs, good provision of services as well as a favourable climate for enterpreneurship and social innovation, which result in a brain drain. Digitalization is a promising approach to counter the situation. A smart village approach for mountain areas could unlock the potential of local actors to make their region a more attractive place to live and work. The project aims to apply a smart village approach and bring together Regional Stakeholder Groups (policy makers, business, academia and civil society) in a quadruple helix approach to improve the framework for innovation through new forms of stakeholder involvement facilitated by Information and Communication Technologies.
The project contributes to better framework conditions for innovation on two aspects – the organisational/societal part (working with Regional Stakeholder Groups), the technical part (development of Digital exchange platform and toolbox with new digital products) and combining the strengths of both sides. Finally the transfer of the results to the policy level contributes to improve the political framework conditions for digital innovation.
SmartIS acts in the project as an IT partner with the competencies of digitalization techniques and implementation skills of digital solutions for smart villages.

The Center of Competence for Smart Cities is a three-year project of national importance, and at the same time the largest development project in Croatia in the field of information and communication solutions, aimed at improving the quality of life of citizens. The project implies a systematic and innovative approach to the development of the city, management of its resources, processes and services, with the help of new technologies. This raises the quality of life of citizens and visitors and enables smart decision-making and management, as well as increased efficiency in terms of planning and achieving savings. Unnecessary waste of the public funds will be avoided as well as inadequate quality of the public goods and services.
In addition to making optimal use of resources, a smart city simultaneously encourages citizens, communities, scientific research institutions and entrepreneurs to use the collected data, which increases the possibility of participation in detecting problems and finding solutions. A smart city is also flexible, open, accessible, focused on citizens and in the long run it attracts investment, encourages entrepreneurship, increases productivity, and democracy among other things.
The Center of Competence for Smart Cities (CEKOM) implies a partnership in the innovation cluster, which connects economic entities and research institutions on research and development projects in smart cities. The goal is to solve the challenges that cities face, such as transport, energy, ecology, infrastructure, resource management, etc. In the innovation cluster that should make Rijeka the smartest city in Croatia, 20 partners are gathered.
