Digital Services & Software

When we talk about sustainability, much of the conversation is centered around resources. Water, oil, gas, iron — these raw materials are either central to our current problems, our future solutions, or both.

There is, however, one raw material above all others. Data. Because we can’t manage what we don’t measure — and, at Danfoss Digital Services, we make data work for you.

Danfoss Digital Services

Harness the power of digitalization

At Danfoss Digital Services, we are developing cutting-edge technology that accelerates the green transition. Our datadriven approach is optimizing energy use, eliminating food waste, and reducing carbon emissions — and we’re not stopping there. Data and connectivity can deliver the key emission reductions that we need. We are ready to help you decarbonize tomorrow.

Sustainability through digital innovation

Danfoss Digital Services is a dedicated business unit of software development specialists committed to sustainable solutions through digital innovation. Our approach is based on the existing expertise earned from our foundation solutions — Alsense and Leanheat.
Both solutions analyze data to provide real-time insights and genuine efficiency for our customers.

Alsense® Food Retail Services

Alsense® Food Retail Services — Less Waste. More Sense.

One third of all food produced today is lost or wasted. In fact, if food waste and loss was a country, it would be the third largest greenhouse gas-emitting country in the world (UN FAO).

Alsense helps eliminate food waste and optimizes cooling efficiency for supermarkets and food retailers through intelligent data.

Alsense® customers


Leanheat® — For true energy optimization. From people to production.

Buildings account for a staggering 40 percent of the world’s energy consumption. And in Europe alone, almost a third of residential heating comes from fossil fuels.

Leanheat empowers district energy networks to optimize the operational efficiency of buildings and increase the comfort of end-users through end-to-end software solutions.

    Apartment block saves energy and money with AI and dynamic balancing

    Centrally heated apartment buildings often suffer from variations in room temperatures due to inefficient and unbalanced heating systems. This can lead to unhappy residents complaining about lack of comfort or high energy bills. Swedish cooperative organization HSB aimed to use an intelligent monitoring and control solution to improve the energy efficiency and indoor comfort of a 12-apartment block that is connected to district heating.
