Discover the hidden energy efficiency champions
in your building

Do you know the energy efficiency champions in your building?

Energy is and will remain expensive. In addition, companies must reduce CO₂ emissions as part of their ESG targets. Many companies therefore invest in renewable energies such as photovoltaics on the roof or purchase green electricity. But is that enough? Discover the hidden energy efficiency champions in your building with the new online tool. You will learn which settings will save you the most energy, costs and emissions at the same time.

By the way, the example building in our online tool has the same dimensions as the Danfoss production site in Graasten, Denmark. All value quantities of the savings and the related calculations are related to the dimensions of this building. Start playing your energy efficiency match now!

Sustainable ventilation technology: VW saves 20% energy and 350 tons of CO₂

Volkswagen relies on the EC+ concept from Danfoss and Novenco for the ventilation of one of the largest assembly halls at the Navarra plant. EC+’ stands for the intelligent interaction of the optimally selected system components such as AC drive, motor and fan. In this way, the new air handling system at the VW plant offers maximum energy and cost efficiency. Because ultimately, drive technology is the key technology for greater energy efficiency in fans and pumps through speed control.

Compared with the previous ventilation system, the 6 new AHUs have a combined total savings potential – based on nominal operation per year – of 747,429 kWh of electrical energy, 350 tons of CO₂ and 199,115 € in electricity costs in the first year. This calculation results for an energy price of 26.64 Cents/kWh. Other underlying assumptions of the calculation are the CO₂ emission factor of 468 g/kWh and 8,760 annual operating hours.

In addition to these significant energy and cost savings, the new units are also 30 percent shorter and lighter.

How to implement ESG in companies?
All episodes of the podcast season at a glance

In the podcast season "Implementing ESG in your company: What to do now?" we go on an ESG journey. For this purpose, we have again invited numerous experts.

In episode (1/4), tech podcaster Robert Weber reflects on ESG: "For me, ESG has always been something that is pushed by the European Union. It’s a real bureaucratic monster that makes life difficult for companies. Talking to this season’s guests, it turns out I was wrong."

Dr. Christopher Scheubel from cubemos and Marie Hammer from Danfoss explain in episode (2/4) what ESG stands for and what tasks are associated with it in companies. They agree that ESG is an opportunity for companies. Because now everyone has to strategically address issues like supply chains and energy consumption.

Anyhow, despite all opportunities, ESG also challenges companies. The topic is new, many processes have not yet been defined. Larisa Xanthopoulou and Michael Wassermann from Danfoss Drives explain in the English episode (3/4) how Danfoss is dealing with the topic and where the company stands on its ESG journey. "We focus on transparency and learning by sharing data and insights with our customers." In the German version of the episode (3/4), elobau Managing Director Michael Hetzer talks about his company’s path to CO₂ neutrality. He is taking on a real pioneering role.

Christine Twellmeyer and Jesper Therbo from Danfoss share practical tips in the English episode (4/4). Christine advises in-house around measures for more energy efficiency at Danfoss sites, while Jesper shows customers and partners how to save energy and emissions in buildings with drive technology. In the German version of the episode (4/4), energy efficiency experts tell you the easiest way to get funding for your investments.
