Danfoss meets many of the world’s climate, urbanization, and food challenges, with proven and reliable solutions – and they’re just getting started. Driven by the power of an electrified society, and fuelled by the opportunities of going digital, Danfoss is dedicated to engineering solutions that can unleash the potential of tomorrow.
Energy efficient technologies empower smart communities and industries to create healthier and more comfortable climates in our buildings and homes; and enable the supply more food with less waste.
As a forward-thinking company with frontline passion, Danfoss’ aim is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2029 globally & in Copenhagen, their global head office, by 2025. By then, Copenhagen will most likely be the first carbon neutral capital in the world.
In the Southern Region of Denmark, energy efficiency has improved by over 40% in ten years – mainly through energy retrofit, green transportation, and the use of heat pumps in rural areas.
Energy efficiency is the largest contributor to emission reductions. Most cities and communities waste a lot of energy for heating and cooling because we have not focussed on the control of energy use. Not only does energy efficiency have a direct impact on global warming and the environment, but it has a direct impact on business revenue.
A great example of energy efficiency optimization is the case study of a city who disappeared from all aerial satellite photographs due to smog and black skies, a product of emissions from the local steel capital of China, a city called Benxi’ coal consumption.
Surrounded by mountains, trapping polluted air and turning snowflakes black, the air pollution had a significant effect on the health of the city’s habitants. Danfoss directed surplus heat emissions produced by the steel company towards transforming the city’s urban heat infrastructure, providing a healthier alternative to conventional coal-fired heating.
