The Danish Embassy invited Danfoss to present energy efficient technologies at a seminar held in conjunction with COP19 in Warsaw.
Climate change is a hard nut to crack and the COP19 climate change conference recently held in Warsaw, Poland, was addressing ways ahead. How can the European Union reduce CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020, when some countries are reluctant to cut car fuel and coal plant emissions?
The Danish Embassy in Warsaw was using COP19 to promote Danish standpoints on climate issues, Danish values as well as Danish green technologies. Danfoss, headquartered in Denmark, was one of the companies invited to present and share its experiences in energy efficient solutions.
The seminar ‘Triggering Energy Efficiency Investments´ was addressed to Polish cities and municipalities planning to finance their investments in energy efficiency projects from the new EU budget 2014-2020. The purpose of the seminar was to present new finance mechanisms based among others on the ESCO and EPC formula, applied successfully in many EU countries.
Moreover, the seminar featured an exchange of experiences among cities and municipalities in Poland and Denmark.
Danfoss took the opportunity to present the new indoor climate controls “living by Danfoss”, and heat pumps; products that can play a significant role in improving energy efficiency from a family building up to typical big city utilities like water treatment plants, buildings cooperatives, schools and nurseries.
During the seminar Martin Lidegaard, the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building underlined the significance of energy efficiency, being the right solution both economically and in terms of climate awareness.
To back up the relation between theory and practice the minister exchanged views on energy efficiency policies, investments and solutions with his Polish counterparts. Minister Lidegaard invited Polish colleagues to take a look at green solutions, which Danish companies presented during the seminar.
