BALTIMORE - Danfoss will sponsor a briefing in New York City, Sept. 15, titled Energy Efficiency: The Path to NYC’s Residential Transformation.

Co-sponsored by the Alliance to Save Energy, the event will explore the strategies and technologies capable of transforming energy consumption in the city’s multiunit residential buildings. Speakers include:

• Congressman Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., U.S. House of Representatives;

• Francis Murray, president and CEO, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA);

• Kateri Callahan, president, Alliance to Save Energy; and

• Tom Sahagian, energy division manager, Power Concept, L.L.C.

“Energy efficiency plays an increasingly important role in the economies of our cities,” said Lyle Moroz, vice president, Danfoss Heating Solutions. “As part of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s comprehensive PlaNYC initiative to improve the city environment, city leaders are giving special attention to the challenge of transforming energy use in existing residential buildings. Their insights and experience can provide valuable feedback for anyone facing similar challenges in the urban environment, especially with respect to the mid- and large-sized multiunit buildings that are such a critical link in the urban housing delivery chain.”

This event will explore the goals and challenges facing New York City and share information regarding actual energy savings results from the recent heating technology installation in two NYC co-ops. For more information, visit
