Petrol and Danfoss Trata: Slovenia, connected through energy: Showroom of global trends
The vision of a carbon-neutral society is achievable through coordinated operation. Petrol and Danfoss Trata prove that the power of cooperation exceeds that of the individual. By confirming that professional networking to search for energy-efficient solutions is feasible for our planet, the two companies are setting an example to the whole of society. Their link-up pursues three objectives: a) the DHC+ international summer school on district energy for educating established professionals and talents/future creators of new technologies; b) to provide information on smart solutions in district energy, and thereby on emission reductions, thus having an influence on the public and society; c) bringing together the district energy profession, which is engaged in creating energy-efficient solutions, at the international level. In 2018 over 40 energy professionals (from students and teachers to employees) from ten European countries took part in the international summer school in Slovenia, helping to develop innovative technological solutions in this area together.
