BALTIMORE - Danfoss, a leader in supplying components, controls, compressors, and systems for air conditioning and refrigeration, has announced the date and location for its ninth EnvisioneeringSMsymposium. Titled “The Challenge: Will Business Create an Energy-Efficient Built Environment?,” this third symposium in the 2008 EnVisioneering Symposia Series will be held Nov. 14 at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif. The symposium will take place in conjunction with the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI’s) annual meeting Nov. 16-18, also in Carlsbad.

Ten days following the U.S. presidential election, leaders in industry, finance, research, and public policy will meet to address questions related to energy efficiency in the built environment. Among them:

• What energy goals will drive the new president and Congress?

• Will they drive radical change in the deployment of energy efficiency technology?

• Will energy efficiency technology mean stronger economic growth?

• Will new energy conditions alone transform the private-sector built environment?

The theme for the 2008 EnVisioneering Symposia Series is “Breakpoint: Energy Efficiency at a Crossroads.” The series explores the energy efficiency challenge, seeking out the experiences, best practices, insights, and discoveries that can help decision-makers meet the needs of the built environment.

This marks the third consecutive year in which Danfoss has hosted the EnVisioneering Symposia Series. The company launched the series in August 2006 to create an ongoing dialogue among industry, the policy community, and thought leaders in research and development.
