Danfoss strengthens cooperation with Leanheat.  At the same time, Danfoss acquires additional shares in Leanheat. For Leanheat, closer collaboration brings more opportunities in international markets. Danfoss strengthens its global position within building energy optimization and management.

In 2016 Danfoss initially acquired a 23 per cent stake in Leanheat. Now its shareholding will double to 46 per cent.

“Leanheat, with their second-to-none expertise within building energy optimization and management, has proven to be a great match to Danfoss allowing us to leverage the growth opportunities, which occur in the market,” says President & CEO Danfoss Kim Fausing.

“IoT and artificial intelligence provide us with huge opportunities to save energy. Our solution is already used in over 40 000 apartments and the installed base is growing rapidly. We are looking forward to strengthen our partnership with Danfoss to further expand our business where we see huge opportunities while continuing to serve our customers as we do today. We see our expanded partnership as a testament to the successes we have created over the last couple of years. We share a common vision and together we will offer even more value to our customers seeking to reduce energy consumption going forward,” says Jukka Aho, CEO Leanheat.

There is a clear need for IoT solutions saving energy with buildings. According to the European Commission, buildings consume 40 per cent of energy in the EU. That needs to be included as part of mitigating the impact of climate change. With the EU revising its legislation to accelerate building renovation and force energy system performance up, new solutions based on artificial intelligence can help building owners achieve the much-needed energy savings in buildings.

“The great news is that already today we have the technology, tools and solutions that provides new opportunities for energy saving, comfort and adaptive use in practice,” says Lars Tveen, President Danfoss Heating.
