Danfoss elevates factory efficiency across Europe with industry thought leaders

Friday, May 21, 2021

From 25 May to 8 June, Danfoss Drives will be hosting four business-relevant Factory Efficiency Days to provide primarily European participants with valuable and innovative ideas on how to elevate energy efficiency in their factories. Renowned, expert industry speakers have been invited to cover everything from energy policies to energy management, distribution, and consumption and to take attendees through some of the technical trends that shape our society in 2021. 

Besides Danfoss’ own factory efficiency experts, an impressive lineup of prominent thought leaders will be joining the sessions: Hugo Salamanca from the IEA, Olaf Kuhnt and Cebastien Foum-Tsakou from the Wilo Group, Jakov Perisic from Molsom Coors, professor Holder Borcherding, Davis Meike from Mercedes-Benz and Peter Markussen from Energinet.

 

The four events will take place from 09:00-10:30 CET and be individually themed. However, the common denominator will be improving overall factory efficiency.

These days, the focus on optimization and efficiency in every aspect of our society is growing and rightfully so. Too much energy isn’t utilized optimally or wasted even, which is money down the drain. The energy which isn’t spent is also not paid for so there’s a big financial benefit to becoming more energy efficient. And from a climate point of view, it’s interesting to note that the greenest of energy is the one we’re not using.
