In October 2020, the first six members entered into the SiEnE partnership. Together with the new partners, we are already exploring new ways to increase their sales opportunities and use their knowledge to develop innovative solutions for defence and civil purposes.
Together with the new members, we are already exploring new ways to take forward their advanced and sustainable defence solutions.
Within the SiEnE partnership, we have already initiated active cooperation with several new partners (ZAG, LAHDE, KES, FERI). A feasibility study on the development of smart and deployable infrastructure capacities, or SmartCamp, is underway. This will combine the concept of dwelling units which are fast erect with those that are energy-saving and self-sufficient, for both defence and civil purposes, as in the event of a civil protection and disaster relief.
We are looking forward to further joint projects in the development of projects for the wellbeing of society, today and tomorrow.

They are therefore an indispensable member of the partnerships under the auspices of TECES. In addition to their membership of SiEnE, they are also a member of the TECES and SRIP Smart Buildings partnerships.
- The Laboratory for Cooling and District Energy (LAHDE), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, established in 1990:
is primarily a research organisation, operating within the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, which is a member of the University of Ljubljana. The laboratory is focused on researching and teaching topics related to the regulation and transfer of heat and matter, down to even the micro- and fractal level. At the same time the lab develops models and processes for managing energy with great potential for larger industries, including defence and construction. LACDE is an active member of the TECES and SRIP Smart Buildings partnerships.
- The Department of Energy Engineering (KES), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, established in 1919:
is a renowned research unit within the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, which is part of the University of Ljubljana. Its focus is on studying key aspects of the so-called green economy, with an emphasis on state-of-the-art energy processes, mobility and sustainable development. KES is an active member of the TECES and SRIP Smart Buildings partnerships. KES’s areas of expertise, that are complementary and synergetic with SiEnE’s objectives, and at the same time with those of TECES and SRIP-PSiDL, are renewable energy sources, hydrogen technologies and fuel cells, e-mobility and batteries, renewable fuels, hydro- and wind energy, and low-emission combustion processes.
- The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (UM FERI), University Of Maribor, Maribor, established in 1975:
is an internationally renowned research organisation within the University of Maribor. FERI is also a member of a development partnership in the field of smart buildings, as well as TECES and SRIP Smart Buildings. As a research partner in the SiEnE partnership, the faculty will play a major role in the development of smart grids and the imparting of knowledge in the field of renewable energy, as well as in the co-design of modern and sustainable systems for energy management.
- The CIVIL ENGINEERING INSTITUTE OF SLOVENIA (ZAG), Ljubljana, established in 1949:
is a leading institute of civil engineering, renowned for its competencies in Slovenia as well as abroad. Its activities encompass multidisciplinary work in the field of materials and other elements of construction infrastructure. By becoming a member of the SRIP Smart Buildings development partnership and SiEnE, the organisation has indicated a clear interest in developing and innovating buildings of the future, which are sustainable, energy-saving, and of utility in both the civil and defence sectors.
