EG EnerKey, one of the leading sustainability and energy management SaaS providers in the Nordic countries, and Danfoss Leanheat®, a pioneer in district heating network end-to-end optimization, are launching a partnership to provide property owners and district heating companies market-leading solutions for both heat optimization and efficiency.
Heating of residential properties is by far the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions from the built environment. Almost 40% of the carbon footprint of the entire built property portfolio stems from the use of district heating. Fluctuating indoor temperatures and humidity problems often cause poor living conditions and can even be detrimental to the health of residents. Conventional heating systems are unable to consider weather forecasts or the thermodynamic features of buildings. This means many buildings are overheated and often have poor indoor air quality.
In addition, up to 75% of apartment building heating systems are unbalanced. Lower consumption is not the only way to reduce energy costs. The heat-storing ability of buildings can also be utilized by using buildings as energy storage, offsetting the need for adding more energy to the grid.
To better serve property owners and district heating companies in optimizing property conditions, the combined service offering of EG EnerKey and Danfoss Leanheat allows the selection of the best services on the market in one solution. The partnership also brings in a concrete solution for the current energy crisis with soaring energy prices that optimizes consumption.
"In the platform economy, only the best solutions will win the market in the future. And combining the best solutions provides a completely unique value proposition for our customers. Best of all, it ensures good and healthy indoor conditions for residents and property users in a seamlessly integrated package," says Jaakko Huhta, Vice President of EG EnerKey.
"The partnership with EG will ensure we deliver a technically solid energy reporting solution on all our key markets and this allows us to focus on developing Leanheat's AI services. The integration of data between systems ranges from indoor conditions to energy reporting and produces high quality information to support heating modeling, allowing both systems to provide more value for customers,” says Lauri Rajamäki, the Head of Leanheat's building owner customer segment.
Together for the international market
EG EnerKey and Danfoss Leanheat have a large joint customer base in Finland, but both also have international operations in the Nordic countries.
"In EG we are always looking to partner up with other great innovators in the market to be able to offer customers state of the art software. The partnership with Danfoss is a testament to this approach and I am certain that our joint customers will see this as a very positive step," says Senior Vice President Rasmus Dalby Martinussen, EG.
"Through partnerships, we are able to add value for our customers as well as reach out to new customers. The partnership with EG is a great fit for us, as our products and customer base complement each other and our values go so well together," says Natalie Schippering, Head of Digital Services, Danfoss Solutions.
