Experience technology and digitization: E-House

Hall B6 / Stand 1602


An important point of contact for architects, planners and building tradespeople as well as builders, property project developers and building owners is the 100 square metre walk-in E-House of the German Electrical and Information Technology Trades Association (ZVEH), which is focusing on the use of AI this year. State-of-the-art, intelligently connected functionalities that are suitable for upgrading existing buildings and for the construction of new buildings will be on display across all manufacturers.

Other topics include the grid-orientated control of heat pumps, charging facilities for electric vehicles or electricity storage and flexible electricity tariffs.
