DANFOSS AND HOFOR PARTNER TO MAXIMIZE BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY WITH AI-POWERED LEANHEAT® SOLUTION
Two Danish powerhouses partner to continue strategic collaboration to enhance energy efficiency and reduce overall energy consumption in multifamily buildings.
HOFOR, the leading district heating utility in Denmark, will utilize the Leanheat® solution from Danfoss. The software solution combines cutting-edge technology, data analytics, and artificial intelligence to optimize energy consumption and improve operational efficiency. This strategic collaboration will reduce overall energy consumption, prevent peak demand, and minimize CO2 emissions across up to 700 buildings within HOFOR's network.
By leveraging Leanheat's advanced algorithms and intelligent heating control, HOFOR will provide tangible benefits to its customers, with anticipated savings of an average of 5%. This first project is scheduled to commence during the heating season 2023/24 and run until 2026. Once the concept has been proved, the intelligent heating control from Danfoss could be expanded to all approximately 10,000 large buildings in Copenhagen within HOFOR’s network.
Utilizing digital tools to automatically adjust consumption during peak hours
With digital tools, it is possible to target the reduction of peak consumption, therefore adding flexibility to the energy system, reducing the need for fossil fuel-powered boilers, and effectively reducing CO2 emissions.
To ensure seamless integration and effective control of the heating systems, all buildings involved in the project will be equipped with Danfoss heating controllers. These state-of-the-art controllers are essential for optimizing the performance of the district heating infrastructure, enabling precise control and monitoring capabilities.
