There are a lot of pretty incredible things about Denmark, from the country’s Viking heritage to having invented Legos (and having a pretty sweet Legoland too, from what we hear!). But what we are truly obsessed with in Denmark isn’t their cool toys or their Smørrebrød (though we love that too), but their amazing Kedel automated wood pellet boilers.
Kedel boilers, manufactured by NBE in Denmark, are helping a lot of Mainers go green and reduce their oil use and their heating bill by heating their homes with Maine-made wood pellets. NBE founders Kim Gregersen and Jannich Hansen started designing Kedel in 1999 in their garage, and today over 50% of the wood pellet boilers in Denmark are made by NBE. NBE has more than 50,000 wood pellet boilers in operation throughout Europe and the US today, helping homeowners reduce their bills and their home’s carbon emissions without the very high installation cost of other wood pellet boilers.
Every year, Kedel dealers from all over the world convene at NBE HQ in Sæby, Denmark, to train on Kedel’s latest improvements and learn about new products and features. This year, our contractor partner ReVision Heat’ Managing Partner Lee Landry attended our staff here at Interphase Energy, and brought back some news of cool new stuff coming down the pipe.
