Kateri Callahan, president of the Alliance to Save Energy, and other energy experts will headline the ninth Danfoss EnVisioneering symposium Nov. 14 in Carlsbad, CA.

“The Challenge: Will Business Create an Energy-Efficient Built Environment?,” will be held at La Costa Resort Spa in Carlsbad. The event will take place in conjunction with the Air-conditioning Heating Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI) annual meeting Nov. 16-18, also in Carlsbad.

Joining Callahan as the featured speakers will be David Macintosh, a legislative assistant to U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, and Joe Turk, president of PWI Energy, Philadelphia.
Ten days following the U.S. presidential election, these speakers and other HVACR industry leaders will address questions related to energy efficiency in the built environment. Among them:

- What energy goals will drive the new president and Congress?
- Will they drive radical change in the deployment of energy efficiency technology?
- Will energy efficiency technology mean stronger economic growth? And will Wall Street take the lead?
- Will new energy conditions alone transform the private-sector built environment?

The theme for the 2008 EnVisioneering Symposia Series is “Breakpoint: Energy Efficiency at a Crossroads.” The series explores the energy efficiency challenge, seeking out the experiences, best practices, insights and discoveries that can help decision-makers meet the demands of the energy-efficient built environment.

2008 marks the third consecutive year in which Danfoss has hosted the EnVisioneering Symposia Series. The company launched the series in August 2006 to create an ongoing dialogue among industry, the policy community and thought leaders in research and development.
