For several years, MOL Nordic Tankers, Dania Ship Management and Danfoss IXA have been cooperating on testing new innovative technology for monitoring emissions from vessels on an ongoing basis. The result is a front-runner solution to ensure global enforcement of the IMO’s requirements for sulphur emissions. To test the solution, the sensor equipment from Danfoss […]
Things get hot in Kingsburg, where the cooling cost index is more than two times higher than the California average. As a result, PurEnergy asked Caldwell Energy Company to provide wet compression technology to increase the output and efficiency of its combustion turbine, thus increasing profitability and reducing NOx emissions.
Traditional central heating systems fail to adjust to changing weather, living patterns and thermodynamic properties of the building, which results in overheating, inefficiency, high costs and poor indoor climate conditions.Danfoss provides software solutions using artificial intelligence to optimally control and monitor centrally heated buildings.
Danfoss and SMA technology enables supermarket “Aktiv & Irma” in Oldenburg, Germany to store and generate electricity with an intelligent, two-way connection to the electricity grid, showing the energy-management potential of supermarkets. The supermarket’s refrigeration and cooling counters are key to making it function like a giant battery and contribute to creating a more flexible, […]
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.
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. Since 1968, when Danfoss developed the world’s first frequency converter, the VLT®, the company has […]
Adjustment to outside temperature can significantly reduce the heating costs in a district heating solution. By the help of electronic controllers and weather compensators, the optimum adjustment to outside temperature is secured. The Danfoss ECL Comfort product range consists of electronic controllers for temperature control in heating and domestic hot water (DHW) systems. The controllers […]
Danfoss continuously help customers reduce their carbon footprint. We focus on energy saving solutions, including valves for automatic hot gas defrost systems and innovative components reducing system leakages. One of the latest additions to the Danfoss portfolio is the ICF Control Solution. The ICF control solution can substitute a series of conventional mechanical, electro-mechanical and electronically […]
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.
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.
Energy is an important driver when ensuring a green transition – both in society, but also in the industries and production facilities across the globe. As the world’s resources are becoming increasingly scarce, companies must learn how to produce more from less – not only to limit their environmental footprint and decarbonise, but also to leverage the competitive advantages of improved production efficiency.
Clean air in cities, shipping, agriculture and industry production is a matter of global health. Consequently, this white paper highlights some of the best practice examples of Danish clean air solutions, which can be implemented in different sectors to reduce ambient air pollution.
