July 9, 2009: Danfoss to Host 11th EnVisioneering Symposium on July 24

BALTIMORE - Danfoss will host its 11th EnVisioneeringSM Symposium on July 24 at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C. Titled “Carbon Neutral, Energy Positive,” the symposium will bring together policy makers from key House and Senate committees, regulatory agencies, and consultants with industry leaders to address climate change and energy legislation in carbon management and energy efficiency for the food chain, commercial buildings, and HVAC industries.

The dialog between industry and policy leaders on how to contain carbon while advancing commerce will include policy expert updates on five topics:

• Carbon Metrics

• Cap and Trade

• Refrigerant Taxes

• HFC Phase Down: Domestic and Global Implications

• Tax Credits and Depreciation Cycles

Speakers scheduled to address these topics include Danielle Rosengarten, Office of Senator Joseph Lieberman; Deborah Estes, Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources; Kevin Fay, principal of Alcalde & Fay, a government relations and public affairs firm; and Michael Pate, managing partner of Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, an international law firm.

“The EnVisioneering symposium - Carbon Neutral, Energy Positive - is a unique forum for HVACR and allied industry leaders to meet with policy makers to learn what critical energy and climate issues are being addressed in Congress, to better understand how the outcomes could affect our industry,” said Robert Wilkins, president of Danfoss Inc.

The July 24 event is the second of four national symposia that Danfoss will host this year as part of its 2009 EnVisioneering Symposia Series. The company launched the series in August 2006 to create an ongoing energy dialog among industry, the policy community, and thought leaders in research and development.
