Symposium to Explore Renewable-Energy Sources in U.S. Buildings

Danfoss, manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration, and motion systems, recently announced its next EnVisioneering Symposium, “The Path of Renewable Energy in Buildings,” will be held June 6 in Washington, D.C.

The event, the 17th in the EnVisioneering Symposia series, will bring together industry and policy leaders to examine what is being done to affect the integration of renewable-energy sources into efficient commercial-building systems. Congressman Peter Welch, D-Vt., will kick off the event with a keynote address.

Participants will engage in a roundtable discussion to address opportunities and obstacles as they pertain to HVAC manufacturers and consulting engineers. Topics and the speakers slated to lead discussion are:

• The state of cost-effective technologies (Michael Oldak, Utilities Telecom Council, and Frank Murray, New York State Energy Research & Development Authority).

• Renewable research-and-development and deployment strategies (John Saintcross, U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and Scott Hennessey, Solar Energy Industries Association).

• Financing models and global experience (Friedo Sielemann, German Embassy).

• Solar vision and the future of buildings (Jigar Shah, Sun Edison).

• Market implementation—HVAC impact, grid integration, and product solutions (Ron Domitrovic, Electric Power Research Institute).
