Every year, Denmark saves 500.000 tons of heating oil by switching to carbon neutral biomass. With over 250.000 stoves sold across Europe, the Danish stove manufacturer Aduro is an active contributor to this energy transition, providing consumers with high efficiency and “smart” stoves.
With the recent surge of smart technologies offering solutions with greater energy efficiency and fewer emissions, digitalisation and user-friendliness are the two key components that allow technologies to be considered “smart”. Firstly, the technology must be able to gather data about energy consumption and adjust the equipment accordingly. Lastly, the consumer needs be able to transform this data into action and control over the system in an intuitive way, yet effective way. In this context, Aduro offers smart technologies that are not only energy efficient, but yield multiple benefits for consumers. Aduro’s proprietary Smart Response technology allows consumers—regardless of the brand or model—to monitor their stove via an app on their smartphone or tablet. This is done with a unit that wirelessly transmits real-time data to the app, allowing users to monitor how hot their stove is burning and when they should add fuel—saving time, money, and energy by optimising the combustion of fuel and ensuring correct use of the stove.
Another aspect of ensuring optimal combustion when using wood stoves is allowing proper air supply and flow should be maintained during the combustion process and when refuelling the stoves. The Aduro-tronic Automatic is a device that regulates this automatically—resulting in less work and improved combustion that can translate into a saving of up to 40% less wood. This not only saves money, but also is a more ecological use of fuel. Lastly, Aduro manufactured stoves combine the both the Aduro-tronic Automation and Aduro Smart Response technologies, putting the power in the hands of the consumer to better monitor and manage their energy use. All Aduro stoves are Nordic Swan eco-labelled, meeting strict environmental and climate criteria while ensuring that the stoves have a minimum efficiency of 76% and low particulate, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions. Aduro’s dedication to innovation has also allowed consumers the opportunity to enjoy hybrid stoves that can be supplied with either wood pellets or regular firewood. Arduro’s stoves can also operated an entire 24 hours after one filling and can be started and controlled remotely via the user’s smart phone.
With innovative companies like Aduro, it’s clear that smart technologies and bioenergy have a real potential symbiotic relationship, not only improving the lives of the individual user— but for all.
