Competition recognizes building owners, end users, OEMs for making strides in energy efficiency and environmental responsibility
Danfoss, a manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration and motion systems, has announced 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 original equipment manufacturers 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 distinguished panel of judges representing different disciplines in the heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration 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. Their 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 award,” Tryson said. The award will be presented in Chicago as part of AHR EXPO 2012.
