Defined Energy was established in 2012. The idea came in 2008, when the entrepreneur Heri S. Jacobsen took a shower, and was reminded by his mother not to let the hot water run too long. The same moment Heri got an idea on how to recycle the energy from the hot water that otherwise would be lost.
After hard work and many adjustments, we have now the solution, which makes it possible to recycle up to 70% of the energy from the wastewater.
Intiative of the Year 2015 – Defined Energy
Defined Energy has been chosen as Initiative of the Year 2015 by the judging committee, appointed by the House of Industry. Defined energy has taken two important aspects of life in the their home country, water and recycling, and combined them into an innovative product that is born global: an invention that recycles the heat from waste water.
Sometimes the Initative of the Year has been bestowed upon companies or people that make us more efficient. Sometimes because they make us environmentally friendly. And sometimes just because of a brilliant invention. This year, the Initiative of the Year is all of this.
In Defined Energy’s home country, the saying “This is too good to throw away” has been heard for centuries, and the judging committee agrees. Heat from waste water should be reused whenever possible, and is too good to throw away.

Grøna virðislønin frá Tórshavnar kommunu:
Grøna virðislønin frá Tórshavnar kommunu verður latin persóni ella stovni, sum á ein hvønn hátt hevur gjørt nakað munagott umhvørvinum at frama.
Í ár verður Grøna virðislønin latin fyritøkuni Defined Energy.
Hetta er eitt herðaklapp, tí fyritøkan Defined Energy hevur uppfunnið og ment eina orkusparandi skipan, sum kann endurnýta hitan í spillvatnið til upphiting. Tað er Heri Schwartz Jacobsen, sum er uppfinnari og høvuðsmennari.
Tórshavnar kommuna hevur ognað sær hesa skipan til svimjihøllina í Gundadali, har hitin frá brúsuvatninum verður nýttur til at hita kalda vatnið. Hetta er eitt sera gott hugskot, tí við hesi orkusparandi loysn verður minni av olju brúkt til upphiting og harvið minkar CO2-útlátið hjá svimjihøllini munandi.
Grønar orkuloysnir, sum henda, hava alstóran týdning fyri okkara umhvørvi.
