BALTIMORE — Danfoss is accepting entries for its seventh annual EnVisioneer of the Year Award competition.

Launched in 2010, the competition recognizes North American original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), building owners, municipalities, contractors, and end users 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 environmental savings.

Interested participants may enter the competition by submitting an application by May 1. Applications will be reviewed and selected by a panel of third-party judges representing various disciplines.

“The EnVisioneer of the Year Award continues to laud energy-efficient and carbon-reducing solutions in action,” said John Galyen, president of Danfoss North America. “Danfoss recognizes the significant role these solutions play and, through our global commitment to Engineering Tomorrow, works hard to support them with high-quality, reliable, innovative products designed to tackle the efficiency and performance challenges our customers face today and will encounter in the future.”

In 2015, Danfoss presented the EnVisioneer of the Year Award to EMCOR Services — Mesa Energy Systems. The commercial HVAC contractor used energy-efficient, variable-speed, oil-free, magnetic-bearing centrifugal compressors in a variety of retrofit applications, including the MacArthur Plaza commercial office building in Irvine, California, to significantly reduce energy consumption and costs, acquire utility rebates, and lower payback period.
