BALTIMORE — Danfoss will hold its next EnVisioneeringSM Symposium on Friday, Nov. 11, in Bonita Springs, Fla. The event, titled The Grid, Systems & Buildings: A Glimpse over the Horizon, will immediately precede the 2011 AHRI Annual Meeting.

This is the 16th event in the EnVisioneering Symposia Series since its launch in August 2006, and will join executives in the HVACR and related industries to take a realistic look at the potential of the future smart grid as it is applicable and relative to the challenges being faced today amongst U.S. buildings and building systems.

Participants will engage in a roundtable discussion guided by presentations in three central topics:

• Systems Energy: Running a Whole Systems Built Community;

• Business Model and Policy: A Framework for the Future; and

• Technologies for a New Grid: A Panel Discussion.

The discussion at the symposium in November will catapult the discussion, said Danfoss, of the 14th EnVisioneering Symposium, held Nov. 2010, titled The Smart Grid and Beyond. Danfoss commissioned a study — Industry Research & Report: Smart Grid — to investigate and gain a better comprehension of building owners’, engineers’, and manufacturers’ opinions and levels of understanding and implementation of the smart grid today. The study highlighted a need for increased communication about smart grid values and financial incentives, as well as concerns about reliability and power quality.
