The InDeal project team is comprised by leading organizations in their respective fields from across the European Union. The project is coordinated by the City University of London and the consortium consists of 11 organizations from eight EU member states.
The project brings together a number of organisations from varying areas such as software developers, experts in system integration and DHCS services providers, to solve a technological problem (i.e. distribution of heating and cooling, DHCS monitoring and control, prediction tools) that relates to a cluster of industries in the many sectors (DHCS, software, energy efficiency, intelligent meters, etc.).

SERM (Société d'Équipement de la Region Montpelliéraine)
SERM is a local semi-public company with 117 employees in South of France. SERM Group mobilizes all its expertise in the implementation of the Montpellier city's urban projects, placing the inhabitants and their quality of life at the heart of the stakes of its mission. Acting mainly on behalf of the City of Montpellier, Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole and its municipalities, the SERM Group's mission is to ensure the harmonious development of the territory.
SERM operates also the district heating and cooling networks of the city of Montpellier with 31 km of pipes and almost 250 energy delivery substations. In this way, SERM, that is a member of FEDENE association cooperates with SNCU and with the consortium, as the third party involved in the WPs 2, 5, 6 and 7.
SERM will act as an end-user of the project and will have the second use case, where the proposed technologies will be validated under operational conditions.
