Furthermore, Stenderup has also become trial site for the Insero Live Lab project, where 25 families in the village will have their homes upgraded to the intelligent home of the with the latest technology within energy and ICT. In these homes, the technologies will be tested and developed further in close collaboration with suppliers and manufacturers.
