Danfoss looks to shift perspectives on the decarbonization of heating and cooling at the MCE exhibition 2024

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

Danfoss is pleased to announce its participation at Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) 2024, taking place from March 12-15 in Milan, Italy.  

Under the theme "Shift your perspective”, Danfoss will encourage attendees to take a fresh look at how we decarbonize and see how proven technologies can help us accelerate our progress towards carbon neutrality. Danfoss will also showcase its newest technologies for heat pumps and chillers that help buildings, industries and communities decrease carbon emissions, energy consumption and operating costs.  

Stéphane Nassau, President Global Sales, Danfoss Climate Solutions says: “As we at Danfoss work toward our goal of carbon neutrality by 2030, we are proud to offer a broad portfolio of solutions to help our customers meet their own decarbonization goals, reduce their energy consumption and build a more sustainable future.” 

Visitors can find us Hall 11, booth N31 P40.

Increasing energy efficiency – from heat source to distribution  

Expo attendees will see first-hand how existing technologies can decarbonize heating – and cooling – in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.  

Stéphane Nassau continues: “What sets Danfoss apart is our expertise that extends beyond just the heat pump itself. From the heat source to the distribution, we provide an extensive portfolio, application expertise and market-leading simulation and testing capabilities to build sustainable heating architectures with enhanced hydronic heat pump designs and overall building performance.” 

During the four-day exhibition, Danfoss experts will discuss the potential of areas like sustainable hydronic heat pump designs and AI-based IoT solutions to make a real difference in communities’ decarbonization efforts. 

How heat pumps can decarbonize multi-family and commercial buildings 

Buildings account for 28%(1) of all global energy-related CO2 emissions. To meet our carbon neutrality targets, we need to make our buildings more energy efficient. At the Danfoss MCE booth, visitors will get a new perspective on how existing technologies can help us do that. They’ll see our extensive heating and cooling portfolio and AI-based services that are designed to improve energy efficiency in residential and commercial buildings.  

“Our comprehensive solution portfolio helps actors along the energy value chain to optimize energy production, distribution and consumption”, says Nassau 

Visitors will discover our end-to-end knowledge, extensive portfolio including compressors, heat exchangers, valves, smart controls, sensors, and many more, supporting OEMs in streamlining the design process, reducing sourcing complexity and accelerating time-to-market. By creating efficient heating architectures that incorporate hydronic balancing valves, smart radiator thermostats and valves, remote monitoring applications and flat stations, we enable property owners and managers to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption. And our AI-based services optimize heat pump performance and reduce energy costs at the building level. Danfoss experts will be on-hand to demonstrate how these proven technologies are improving energy efficiency in urban areas across Europe.  

Boosting efficiency in industrial and district heating applications 

In the EU alone, excess heat amounts to 2,860 TWh/y, corresponding almost to the EU’s total energy demand for heat and hot water in residential and service sector buildings(2). There is tremendous potential in capturing this excess heat and using it to power our cities and homes. At MCE, we will have an entire section of our booth dedicated to how we can use existing technology to recover industrial waste heat and use it for process and district heating. Our experts will explain how to build resilient infrastructures and the vital role software and digitalization play in this endeavor.  

We will also present our technologies for achieving water temperatures of up to 100°C, which are critical for high temperature industrial heating systems. OEMs will see our full portfolio of compressors, industrial refrigeration components, heat exchangers, controls, and sensors, with low-GWP and natural refrigerants, which they can use to design reliable and efficient industrial heat pump systems. And building and network managers will find out how to use our AI-based, IoT solution services to gain actionable insights into energy usage, which they can use to optimize their buildings and district energy networks. 

Stéphane Nassau concludes: “Our aim at this year’s MCE exhibition is to inspire our visitors to embrace innovative solutions that can redefine energy efficiency, sustainability and comfort in the places where we work and live and demonstrate how we can use these solutions today to start building a greener tomorrow.”
