Njal Pettit recommended UFChain - Development team where Rui is Co-Founder

I had the pleasure of working with Rui and Jose in exploring how key megatrends would change the future of district energy systems in cities, what this means to our future District energy business at Danfoss and how we can be a leader in the emerging heating / energy grids and related energy trading, as demands on waste heat re-use, among other things , increases. Rui and Jose were able to capture the challenge and understand it immediately. Then working with our experts, were able to develop a full 360 approach how we could move forward that was clear and well thought through. It has significantly help our understanding of both the challenge and our technology options as these trends start to distrupt our business. Well done! Njal Pettit, Head of Technology Management & Innovation, Danfoss group.
