Cold chain technology has been a game changer for Indian banana farmers. Their income has tripled, while banana wastage has been brought down by almost 20 per cent. In 2018, the first Indian bananas were exported to Europe by ship, which marks a new era for the world’s banana giant.
Tackling marine emissions The Taiwanese port city of Kaohsiung relies on its marine network to transport machined goods across its bustling harbor. It is the thirteenth largest in the world. Kaohsiung is typical of many harbor cities in Asia, where diesel ferries are a necessary part of life. Yet this activity comes at a cost, […]
Sustainable Energy for All today announced a new global Cooling for All panel during the UN General Assembly and Climate Week NYC. Danfoss has been appointed a member of the new panel, which will work to increase access to affordable and sustainable cooling solutions throughout the world.
Over the course of ten years, Danfoss has managed to cut almost half of the company’s emissions of carbon dioxide at its factories in Nordborg and Gråsten. The company is therefore well-equipped to fulfil its part of the ProjectZero vision to make the region of Sønderborg CO2-neutral before 2029.
Energy efficiency is the largest contributor to reducing CO2 emissions – now and in the future. Well-proven solutions exist that can save the needed energy; however, their adoption must be accelerated. The Danfoss CEO speaks at the biggest COP21 side events in Paris to highlight this and push for a strong global deal.
In the German, Niehl suburb of Cologne, the old Ford residential complex has been completely renovated. While living standards have increased, demand for heating has declined by 94%. A heating concept from Danfoss has played an important part in the renovation.
Danfoss VLT Drives is dedicated to developing frequency converters, motor starters and accessories for the electronic control of AC and PM motors;.products that help improve processes and installations, increase production, efficiency and safety while saving energy at the same time.

The combination of energy supply with heat pumps and district heating offers significant economical and environmental advantages. Basically, the system works with heat pumps and district heating complementing each other. Heat pumps and district heating can serve a wide range of environments via micro-networks such as neighbourhoods, multi-residential dwellings, shopping centres, hotels and hospitals. The […]
Solar heating converts the sun’s energy into heat that provides domestic hot water and space heating. Increased requirements for energy efficiency, individual comfort and reliability in solar systems require an innovative installation concept. District heating offers a unique possibility to meet these requirements. The Danfoss solar solutions secure safety in design, which is crucial for […]
In 2015, the City of Copenhagen finished an extensive renovation of the Culture Centre situated at Valhalsgade 4 in a collaboration with 8 Danish producers of cutting edge energy solutions for buildings. The building was a demonstration project of the City and the private partners up to COP 15. The Culture Centre is now open for […]
Heating pumps with vertical bore holes Funded by ELFORSK This preliminary project encompasses analyses, calculations and simulations and will establish the theoretical basis for a possible use of heating pumps with vertical borings. The outcome is to be a number of recommendations for the continued work, a map of potential Danish sites for vertical borings and […]
The global trends of urbanisation, population growth and increased welfare challenge cities all over the world. This white paper shares methods of how water utilities can improve water quality, increase resource efficiency and ensure uninterrupted service to customers.
Energy is an important driver of industrial productivity growth. For a long time Europe has known that energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This White Paper covers insights into Denmark’s experience with energy efficiency across a wide range of industrial sectors through state-of-the-art case examples.
Buildings account for up to 40% of society’s energy demand and thereby play a key role in the green transition. This White Paper can be used as a tool for inspiration to spot the potential or implement building automation and energy-efficient measures in new and existing buildings globally.
When looking at the global climate challenges, the energy system is one of the biggest obstacles towards a carbon-free and net-zero future. The European Union has set ambitious objectives for an energy system, which integrates renewable energy and energy efficiency, as well as enabling a well-functioning energy market. These elements in combination can support a […]
District Energy holds a vast potential for energy efficiency in urban areas. This White Paper highlights the key elements for success in district heating and cooling. It covers aspects from regulation and planning, efficient production of thermal energy, to storage, distribution and end user solutions.
This project demonstrates how smart cities are built on smart solutions that promote synergies between district heating, district cooling, waste water, ground water and power while benefiting the local community.
To achieve the global ambitions for a green transition, large sums of finance are needed. This white paper features ideas and solutions for how to achieve the goals and it is meant to serve as an inspiration for everyone involved in the green economy.
