Danfoss, a manufacturer of electronic and mechanical components and control systems for refrigeration and air conditioning, heating and motion controls, announced the inaugural EnVisioneer of the Year award competition.
Launched at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Expo in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 25 to 27, the competition recognizes end users, building owners and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that have used Danfoss products to realize significant energy and environmental savings.
“EnVisioneering is a strategic, customer-focused approach designed to create engaged partnerships with our customers by combining engineering innovation, energy efficiency and environmental responsibility,” said Robert Wilkins, president of Danfoss North America. “This competition will help business leaders continue to advance energy efficient and sustainable solutions that support improved performance and profitability, higher standards and lower operating costs in buildings and facilities.”
The EnVisioneer of the Year competition is open to 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 and have used Danfoss products to realize significant energy and/or environmental savings.
Participants may enter the competition by submitting an application no later than March 31, 2010. A team of judges representing different disciplines in the HVAC&R industry will review all applications and select the winner.
The EnVisioneer of the Year will receive a donation in his or her honor to the Alliance to Save Energy, an environmental advocacy group committed to advancing energy efficiency policy and technology in the U.S. The award will be presented in Washington, D.C., May 13 following the Danfoss EnVisioneering Symposium and the Alliance to Save Energy’s EE Global Forum.
