BALTIMORE - Chandra Govindarajalu, senior environmental analyst for the World Bank, and Glenn Barrett, director of energy management for grocery retailer Supervalu, will headline the sixth Danfoss EnVisioneering symposium, “Breaking Through: Creating an Informed Energy-Efficiency Technology Marketplace,” Oct. 23 in Washington, D.C.
The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hotel Washington, 15th Street
NW at Pennsylvania Avenue, in the nation’s capital.
Barrett will address the topic, “The Built Environment: An Informed End-User
Perspective,” while Govindarajalu will discuss “Education for Energy
Efficiency: Experience Abroad.” Their presentations will be complemented by two
sessions: “Assessing Results: Reports from the Energy Efficiency Frontier” and
“EnVisioneering Symposia: The Year in Review, What’s on Deck for 2008?”
“Creating a 21st century culture of energy efficiency starts with effective
steps to educate key players in the marketplace,” said John Galyen, president
of Danfoss Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning, North America. “This symposium
will explore what it takes to move the marketplace, build awareness, establish
trust, and drive deployment of innovations that can tap deeply into the
reservoir of potential energy savings.”
Galyen will once again host the symposium and lead the final session,
“EnVisioneering Symposia: The Year in Review, What’s on Deck for 2008?” The
event is being co-organized by Global Strategy Initiative, a Washington,
D.C.-based consulting firm, and Godfrey, a Lancaster, Pa.-based marketing
