Energy and natural resources

A secure and efficient energy supply is fundamental for the independence and environmental sustainability of any society. As cities and nations grow, their need for energy rises, requiring new and more sustainable energy sources. There are massive energy savings to earn by optimizing energy distribution and applying energy efficiency measures.  At the same time, renewable sources such as wind farms and solar PV parks supplement and replace traditional fossil-fuel power plants.

 

Underground and deep-sea deposits contain fuel sources for the energy sector such as coal, oil, and gas, as well as minerals and metals that are valuable to the manufacturing industries of our shared planet. In each of these industries, you can use Danfoss solutions to improve sustainability and cost-effectiveness whilst reducing capital and operating expenditures.
