India is the world’s second largest producer of fruits and vegetables, but also accounts for one of the biggest food loss and waste with harvest and post-harvest losses in fruits, vegetables, and grains worth INR 440 billion every year1.
The fuel of tomorrow is everything we can save today.
Our new brand promise reflects our sharper focus in delivering technologies
today that help save energy in farm-to-fork models and smart cities of
tomorrow. Danfoss engineers technologies that enable the world of tomorrow to
do more with less. Danfoss helps meet the growing need for infrastructure, food
supply, energy efficiency and climate-friendly solutions.
We help build the infrastructure for the world’s
growing cities – and we do it in a sustainable way.
We help meet the need for more and better food by
improving farming productivity and keeping food fresh all the way to consumers
in the most efficient and safe way with minimum waste. In the field, we provide
hydraulic products for machinery such as intelligent tractors and harvesters
that help optimize the harvest on the farms. When food is harvested or fished
from the sea, our innovative technology controls the temperature and monitors
the refrigeration in transportation, plants, distribution centres and
supermarkets. This saves energy and CO2, keeps costs down, minimizes food waste
and improves food quality.
By 2031, about 40% of the total population in India will be residing in cities and towns. This rapid urbanization means opportunities for infrastructure sector as well as challenges to keep the transition preserving the environment.
hospitality industry’s requirement of hot water represents one of the biggest
end uses of electricity. It is estimated that the average consumption of
sanitary hot water in hospitality industry is 90 to 160 litres per guest per
day per hotel,
The whole world may be looking to find the next best source of energy, so we can reduce the dependence on fossil fuel, and generate environment-friendly energy.
Agriculture serves as a major contributor to the country’s GDP (around 14-15%), with over 58 per cent of the rural households depending on agriculture as their principal means of livelihood.
Rapid industrialization and growing population are increasingly changing the ecology of the planet. Let’s have a look at how various industry applications can utilize some of these energy efficient and pollution-reducing systems.
In part 1 of this blog, we learnt how residential and commercial buildings can deploy energy efficient infrastructure and monitoring systems to ensure energy conservation.
Today, India is at the cusp of industrialisation- an engine that was set rolling decades ago and is yet to reach maturity. This will only propel as the country gains centre stage in the new age economy with Infrastructure as its backbone.
Danfoss in India decided to join hands with other stakeholders in leading the work to build a cold chain in India in such a way that there is an uninterrupted chain, right from when the farmer harvests the food through to the processing, the transportation.
Today’s world needs long term sustainable solutions to answer questions of how to manage existing infrastructure, growing talent or developing new business. We are lucky to be to living in a time when we have both, the technology and expertise to achieve this.
Infrastructure is perhaps the backbone of any nation, and commercial buildings form an integral part of this. Today, commercial buildings account for about one-third of the total global energy use. Considering the current scenario, energy demand is expected to rise 50% by 2050.
Engineering Tomorrow begins with identifying the issues that are faced currently by a business and helping them overcome it through the application of the right technological solution. It involves research, a proper understanding of the issue and creation of a solution.
Urban areas are today responsible for nearly two thirds of India’s GDP and is bound to make a bigger contribution in the future. It is with this reasoning we have seen the Government draft plans to build Smart Cities across the country.
