Danish multinational engineering group Danfoss is to partner with a Danish heat network to use artificial intelligence (AI) to improve building efficiency.
Low carbon Heating
Swedish heat pump firm Aira has launched in the UK, pledging to create 8,000 jobs as part of a £300m investment.
Jakob Jul Jensen head of business development, data center vertical at Danfoss, explains that we should use the excess heat generated by data centers to make waste heat reuse economically advantageous for all involved.
A new analysis by Danfoss found that the demand-side flexibility technology alone can achieve annual societal cost savings of €10.5 billion by 2030, cut consumer energy bills and save CO2 emissions.
No more public money should go into hydrogen for domestic heating because electrification is the only viable means of decarbonising heating and hot water in UK homes, writes Jenny Curtis, managing director of Vattenfall Heat UK.
This week's investment roundup looks at the rise of climate tech investment in the Middle East and North Africa, how central governments are supporting sustainability projects and the latest guides to responsible investing.
The UK’s natural gas network will be ready to blend some hydrogen into the grid by the end of next year, according to its operator, which is preparing for the technology despite renewed debates about its viability.
In a report on the UK's net zero needs, the National Infrastructure Commission says there is "no public policy case" for hydrogen to be used to heat individual homes or other buildings.
Research from Schneider Electric and Boston University says 247,000 UK jobs could be created during the transition to net-zero buildings and millions more in the EU and the US by adopting clean energy technologies in new and retrofitted buildings.
Electric Thermal Solutions (ETS) has developed an affordable thermal battery that turns intermittent renewable electricity into a reliable supply of industrial heat. Founded in 2021 by Daniel Stack and Joey Kabel, the Massachusetts-based startup is currently preparing for the construction of its first full-scale demo.
