Intelligent and environmentally friendly wood-burning stove wins DI Award

HWAM has taken the wood-burning stove into the digital age and created an intelligent and environmentally friendly wood-burning stove which Tuesday won the Confederation of Danish Industry Award 2016.

The Confederation of Danish Industry Award was presented at the Confederation of Danish Industry Summit at the Opera House in Copenhagen.

This new award is designed to be given to a company that has created new opportunities and converted them into growth and jobs for the benefit of Danish society. A requirement for this year’s award was that the winning company had used digital technology to develop and consolidate its activities.
 
“This year’s award winner shows that there aren’t many things that can’t be digitised. People have lit fires since prehistoric times, but the wood-burning stoves from HWAM give us a completely new experience. The user-friendliness of the stoves is first-rate, room temperature is pleasant and the wood is utilised in the best way possible,” says Jan Damgaard who presented the award on behalf of the committee of experts who set up the Confederation of Danish Industry Award.
 
Earlier this year, the committee of experts, which comprises five independent specialists, nominated five businesses for the Confederation of Danish Industry Award. The committee then voted for its favourite – as did the members of the Confederation of Danish Industry.
 
“We are very proud to have won the Confederation of Danish Industry Award. But the battle has only just begun. We are operating in a very competitive market. Digitisation of our wood-burning stoves has given us an advantage in the international market which we hope to be able to exploit in the coming years,” says Managing Director of HWAM Stefan Pedersen.
 
HWAM’s new technology connects a smartphone or tablet that has a room temperature gauge wirelessly with the electronic controls of the airflow in the wood-burning stove.

The technology ensures that the oven keeps the room at the required temperature. The oven can be set to a fixed night-time temperature so that it automatically reduces airflow. This prolongs the burning process while being environmentally friendly. This is not possible with other ovens and systems.
 
“The autopilot means that the wood-burning stove becomes cleverer than its user. It uses about half the wood that other ovens use. It also significantly limits particle pollution,” says Stefan Pedersen.
 
The Confederation of Danish Industry Award includes a certificate and an artwork.
