SWEDEN/DENMARK: Danfoss is expanding its partnership with Swedish retail energy solutions provider ANEO Retail by bringing its energy as a service offering to Denmark.
ANEO Retail’s Energy as a service (EaaS) offers grocery stores a highly flexible solution that gives access to new and energy efficient equipment without large investments and high up-front costs. Additionally, a performance guarantee is offered on energy, reliability and operating costs, ensuring that customers get both security of technical operation and predictable operating costs.
Danfoss teamed up with ANEO Retail to establish a joint venture in Sweden last year. Now the cooperation has extended to Denmark to support the decarbonisation journey of the Danish food retail industry.
“We are extremely pleased with the partnership we have with Danfoss. They contribute with their network and expertise and are an important part of the company’s technology development,” said Tarje Holskil, ANEO AS’ executive vice president of marketing and business development.
“Energy as a service is an innovative solution that offers customers a worry-free transition to the best refrigeration and freezer systems on the market without the need for high, up-front investment,” commented Danfoss Climate Solutions president Jurgen Fischer.
ANEO Retail Denmark AS will take overall responsibility for projects in Denmark, and offer refrigeration and other technical installations to grocery stores as a service. The company says it will work according to the same model that ANEO has had great success within Norway and Sweden.
The refrigeration as a service technology and model will also be utilised in the Danfoss Smart Store supermarket that will open to customers later this year. The state-of-the-art supermarket is situated right next to Danfoss’ headquarters and will lead the way for how supermarket chains around the world can build climate-friendly and sustainable stores with heating and cooling technologies that already exist today. Additionally, this site will serve as an application development centre where Danfoss will work together with partners to co-develop new technologies and explore interfaces in the energy system surrounding energy storage.
