BALTIMORE — Danfoss announces the third annual EnVisioneer of the Year award competition and is now accepting entries for consideration.

Launched in 2010, the competition recognizes U.S. end users, building owners, and OEMs that have introduced a new product, opened a new facility, or invested in a building or system upgrade in the past 18 months using Danfoss products or solutions to realize significant energy and/or environmental savings.

Interested participants may enter the competition by submitting an application no later than Jan. 12, 2012, to Lisa Tryson, director, corporate communications and public relations, at Danfoss. A panel of judges representing different disciplines in the HVACR industry will review all applications and select the winner.

As part of their recognition, a donation will be made to Rebuilding Together in honor of the selected 2012 EnVisioneer of the Year. Rebuilding Together is a nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities. Its network of more than 200 affiliates provides extensive renovations and modifications to the homes of low-income Americans at no cost to the homeowners, making the homes safer, more accessible, and more energy efficient.

“The opportunity to publicly recognize the award winner’s achievement and, at the same time, support the efforts of other organizations that are also working to advance energy efficiency enhances the value of the EnVisioneer of the Year award,” Tryson commented. The award will be presented in Chicago as part of the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Exposition (AHR Expo) 2012.
