Danfoss Drives controlling the temperature at COP26

Thursday, October 28, 2021

GLASGOW: From October 31st to November 12th, 2021, the world will be watching the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow, UK, where delegates from almost 200 countries will carry out some of the most important discussions about the future of our planet and take firm steps for ramping up global climate action during the Conference of the Parties and is the United Nations’ annual conference on climate change (COP26).

Danfoss Drives and Honeywell are proudly working together to create a healthier and more productive environment at the SEC during the conference and every day. Importantly, they improve the building environment while significantly contributing to the energy saving goals, thanks to the innovative technologies implemented at the venue.

Indoor air quality at best standards

For more than 20 years, Danfoss and Honeywell have worked with the SEC to deliver Building Management & Energy Efficiency Systems. The COVID-19 pandemic significantly changed the way buildings operate, with a greater-than-ever emphasis on the air quality in indoor spaces.

During the COP26 conference, these heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems will help provide healthier indoor air quality, emphasizing filtration, temperature and humidity in the conference venues to maximize the attendees’ comfort and productivity.

AC drives from Danfoss, which play a key role by efficiently circulating fresh air and pushing the used air outside again, can help provide a cleaner indoor environment. Danfoss AC drives communicate with the Honeywell building management system (BMS) to intelligently match fan speed to the actual load for optimal system energy efficiency. Just 20% reduction in fan speed can result in approximately 50% reduction in energy consumption. Read more in our VLT HVAC Drive FC 102 Design Guide here.  

Additionally, Honeywell Forge, Honeywell’s enterprise performance management solution, recently implemented at the SEC, provides near real-time analytics and visibility into the energy, space, and comfort performance across the facilities. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution helps drive energy efficiency without sacrificing occupant comfort which can translate into significant cost savings and lower CO2 emissions. 

The Scottish Event Campus includes The OVO Hydro, SEC Armadillo and SEC Centre. It is the largest exhibition and event campus in Scotland.

Danfoss proudly supports the COP26

Danfoss will be present at some of the supporting events and discussions during COP26 to help highlight the importance of energy efficiency and show decision makers how much can be done with existing building solutions.

“I am proud that our products contribute to the indoor climate during COP26. The event may be the world’s last chance to take stronger action, so global warming can stay below the 2° Celsius limit agreed in Paris,” says Alan Baird, Country Manager, Danfoss UK & Ireland.

Danfoss will also play a role at another important conference – the International Energy Agency’s annual conference on energy efficiency. It will take place in June 2022 in Sønderborg, Denmark, a few kilometers from Danfoss headquarters. Danfoss is one of the co-organizers of the conference which is the world’s most important annual event on energy efficiency.

Thanks to the VLT® HVAC Drive FC 102, just 20% reduction in fan speed can result in approximately 50% reduction in energy consumption.
