Active participation in the environmental debate

We are happy to participate in projects that focus on energy efficient building construction and especially Passive Houses. Influencing which way, the wind blows in the ventilation and heat pump area – both in politics and technology – is a high priority for Nilan.

We are happy to get involved in the environmental debate, e.g., through memberships in relevant organisations within the field of low energy consumption. We take a stand and are happy to enter into a dialogue to achieve results that benefit our common future.

Nilan actively participates in the environmental debate and in the development of new technologies and is currently part of a new project that has developed an intelligent system to ensure a good indoor climate and low energy consumption.

Nilan is part of the EUDP project, which is a collaboration between VELUX Group, DTI and Nilan to develop the next generation indoor climate and energy control (Smart Green Indoor Climate Manager) with the help of, among other things, documentation, and testing for a 2-year period.

The technology supports the green transition in both Denmark and the EU with significant savings on energy consumption.

The next phase, which will start in the autumn of 2022, is to find six families in Denmark, France and Germany who will help test the newly developed technology.

Int. Passive House Association

The International Passive House Association in Germany works to promote the standard for passive houses and raise awareness of this type of highly energy-efficient buildings.
The members exchange knowledge and experience and contribute with input from each part of the industry


VPI works for a fossil-free Denmark.

Industry manufacturers and suppliers work together to change consumption patterns and ensure CO2 savings using renewable energy.

Nílan’s founder Torben Andersen has been elected chairman of the association.

GoGreen by Nilan

Nilan's promise to future generations goes beyond ventilation and heating without the use of fossil fuels. It also covers a focus in our production and general actions in our everyday lives.


We are by nature economical, and this has an impact on our consumption patterns as a company. We constantly optimize and adapt procedures in our production to ensure the least possible waste of raw material in terms of both materials and energy consumption. When we can optimize e.g., minimize consumed space in the transport of our sub-components, we take advantage of the opportunity - both for the sake of the environment and the financial benefit.

Energy renovation

Since day one, our purpose at Nilan has been to supply our customers with ventilation units and heat pumps, that both provide a healthy indoor climate and are energy efficient. This has remained our focus because we believe that everybody has a responsibility towards generations to come and our future planet.

The shift from dependence on fossil fuels to heating with heat recovery and renewable energy is an act of responsibility. This can be done by purchasing a new ventilation system or an energy renovation of older units, if the building does not allow replacement of an old system.
