Insights for Tomorrow
This is where the transformation starts
Together with our customers we are engineering solutions that allow us to use resources in smarter ways. Explore inspiring stories where our innovative technologies drive the sustainable transformation of tomorrow, today.
Energy efficiency – the trillion-dollar opportunity
From the homes we live in, the places we work and the stores we rely on to our food production, water purification and transport – energy efficiency is where the future of a sustainable existence starts.
This is where the transformation of our supermarket starts
Supermarkets are heavy energy consumers. But it does not have to be that way. What if we can transform supermarkets to become electricity providers as well. Thanks to Danfoss technology, Aktiv & Irma, in Oldenburg, Germany, is on a journey to make it happen.
This is where the AI-optimized city starts
One third of all the energy buildings consume today is used for heating and cooling. To optimize this, the Leanheat solution from Danfoss is transforming building HVAC systems for smart control and efficiency. Through artificial intelligence, the peak demand is reduced, while maintenance needs are cut by one third.
This is where electrification at sea starts
The shipping industry is under pressure to become more sustainable. The Future of the Fjords is the world’s first electric carbon-fiber vessel. And it already meets 2026 targets, today. Danfoss variable speed drives, sensor solutions, and other technology help make it happen. We are getting close to an electric, emission-free shipping industry future.
Now is the time when cranes get brains
What would you call cranes that remember when, where, how, and who operated them on any given day? Or cranes that communicate with you via the internet and in real-time? PALFINGER’s new truck-mounted cranes do just that – and more. They are cranes with brains. At Danfoss, we are very proud to have helped make it happen.
This is where the CO2 neutral city starts
Copenhagen aims to be the world’s first CO2 neutral capital. And in its Nordhavn area, Danfoss technologies help by delivering efficiency and flexibility with district heating substations based on ultra-low temperatures, adaptive building controls, and utilization of local energy sources such as surplus heat from supermarkets. We pave the way toward a decarbonized infrastructure.
Start saying goodbye to NOx
Grovfjord Mekaniske Verksted, Norway, has designed one of the world’s first fully electric workboats. No engine noise, no diesel fumes, zero emissions. It’s electrification at sea. And drives from Danfoss have helped make it happen.

3 ways district energy supports countries´ green recovery post-coronavirus
Sustainable, efficient energy infrastructure, alongside building efficiency retrofit, are investments that can support countries boosting economic growth and mitigating climate change. The district energy sector can take up the challenge.
Energy, food and leaky pipes: how to solve India's water crisis
The global water crisis is not a new story. Every year, I review statistics that are becoming all too familiar: an expected 40% gap in the global water supply, the 2.1 billion people who lack access to safe drinking water and the fact that water has ranked in the top five risks for eight consecutive years in the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report.
To enable Europe’s clean energy future, we need to buckle up and couple up
The theme for this year’s EU Sustainable Energy Week is ’Shaping Europe’s Energy Future’ – that future holds plenty of potential and must rest on further integration across sector and policies to ensure we optimize our energy systems for optimal performance and efficiency.
Connecting the dots to enable climate leadership at all levels
We are running out of time to achieve the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030, and need urgent and ambitious climate leadership. Cities are central to this effort and it is crucial that we continue to enable our cities to address and solve climate challenges.
Turning words into action
Danfoss’ Engineering Tomorrow talks are a global platform and series of events created to activate innovative thinking and solutions around climate and energy.
#ETtalks bring together top speakers and visionaries to inspire the world of engineering to design today in a way that doesn’t compromise tomorrow.
