Netmore and Danfoss Leanheat collaborate for energy savings in Sweden

Netmore Group has formed a partnership with the Danfoss business unit Leanheat to enhance energy efficiency in properties throughout Sweden. By leveraging Netmore’s LoRaWAN technology, the collaboration aims to achieve significant energy savings of 20-25%. The focus is on optimising energy consumption and reducing waste in buildings.

Targeting energy efficiency with LoRaWAN Solutions

The partnership between Netmore and Danfoss aims to enhance the energy management of Swedish properties. Utilising temperature and humidity sensors together with Danfoss Leanheat’s AI-supported software, the initiative is expected to contribute to reducing energy consumption in the involved properties, with the potential for 20-25% energy savings.

Strategic sensor deployment for energy management

Danfoss Leanheat’s approach includes the option of installing sensors in apartments for detailed energy usage data, although it is not mandatory for the functionality of the system. Danfoss has, together with Netmore, added more than 2,000 sensors to Netmore’s network in a short period and more are on the way. This deployment remains a key component in achieving the projected energy savings.

Beyond immediate energy efficiency improvements, this partnership sets the foundation for future exploration of additional use cases. By reducing energy consumption in heating and ventilation, this collaboration promotes environmental sustainability as well as offers financial benefits to property owners. It contributes to more sustainable and efficient property management practices, aligning with long-term goals of both cost savings and environmental responsibility.

“Establishing a robust and secure technical network is essential for connected property management,” Maria Gihlström, a sales manager at Danfoss Digital Services, said. “Our partnership with Netmore is crucial in developing a digital infrastructure that supports interconnected systems and sensors, providing a comprehensive solution for digital energy optimisation. Our goal is to offer property owners real-time data insights to enhance sustainability and efficiently manage energy consumption.”

Eric Collinder, a country manager for Nordics at Netmore Group AB, said, “Partnering with Danfoss represents an important step in the connected real estate sector. We are pleased that our LoRaWAN-enabled connectivity, which is focused on operational efficiency, forms a key part of Danfoss’s energy management solutions. This collaboration underlines our commitment to providing technology that supports effective digitisation in the real estate industry.”
