The global demand for renewable energy is continuously increasing and so is the demand for innovative solutions. According to the consultancy company Deloitte, the growth in the renewable energy sector appears to be poised by emerging policies, expanding investment interest, and advancing technologies. The Danish company ENFOR offers a range of technologies focusing on challenges within district heating and renewable energy helping to meet the demand of the growing market.
One part of ENFOR has developed high-tech solutions to control and optimize heat in the district heating network. With algorithms that can forecast weather and heat demand it is possible to optimize the temperature in the district heating network. The other solution that ENFOR has developed successfully entails predicting the demand of electricity production of solar and wind farms. Especially within the renewable energy sector, ENFOR experiences high demand for their niche product on international markets.
From a research project to an international player
The journey from a research project at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU, to an international company started in the early 90s. From the beginning the company targeted markets outside of Denmark to enlarge their commercial potential. To date, ENFOR succeeded to expand to 17 countries with ambitions to enter even more international markets in the near future.
ENFOR has established a small team of experts focusing on the challenges different markets bring with them. Specifically, the complex and long sales processes of large energy companies require all available resources and focus from the company. The response from customers has been overall positive and users are satisfied with ENFOR´s solutions and the profit generated by forecasting energy use.
