Danfoss and Google enter into a strategic partnership on AI and energy efficiency

Danfoss and Google announced a strategic partnership to make use of the latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and promote energy-efficient solutions in data centres.

Under the partnership, Danfoss, the Danish multinational engineering group, will use Google Cloud’s generative AI capabilities to optimise the customer experience, streamline internal work processes, and improve productivity across the organisation. This can be done, for example, by using gen AI to collect and surface information, automate knowledge, generate product descriptions, and create solutions with chatbots in e-commerce. 

As a global leader in energy-efficient solutions, Danfoss is working with Google to implement sustainable cooling systems for data centres and to design systems that reuse the excess heat produced by data centres, noted the press release.

Ravichandran Purushothaman, President- Danfoss India Region said, “Danfoss and Google's strategic partnership will accelerate the digital transformation of customer experience. Leveraging latest technological advancements in AI and energy efficiency in Data center operations will help Danfoss’ customers to achieve common objectives of sustainability, operational excellence, and business performance.”

Meanwhile, Danfoss’ heat reuse modules will make it possible for Google to capture and reuse heat produced by data centres, providing a renewable energy source to supply heating on-site and to neighboring commercial and residential buildings, communities, and industries that need heat for their processes. Going forward, Danfoss' expertise in decarbonisation solutions will be used to an even greater extent to advance data center sustainability in Europe, North America, and beyond, claimed the press release. 

The new agreement, announced during the AHR Expo in Chicago, USA, builds on an existing collaboration between the two companies, which were among the founders of the Net Zero Innovation Hub in Fredericia, Denmark, announced in September, 2023, where a number of major players joined forces to accelerate the green transformation of data centers. Danfoss and Google are now taking a step further by entering into a broader partnership.

Jürgen Fischer, President, Danfoss Climate Solutions, said: “At Danfoss, we want to revolutionise how we build and decarbonise data centers together with our customers. When we partner up across industries, as we have done with Google, we accelerate this development towards building better and more sustainable data centers - using technologies available today.”

Google Vice President of Data Center Innovation, J.P. Clausen said, "Danfoss is a leader in energy efficiency, and these solutions help support Google’s 2030 goal of running our data centers on carbon-free energy 24/7. We’re happy to deliver AI innovation through Google Cloud, enabling businesses like Danfoss to operate in new and smarter ways."
