Baltimore-based Danfoss, a maker of components, controls, compressors and systems for air-conditioning and refrigeration, has issued a 16-page report that summarizes the key findings from its 2006 EnVisioneering Symposium Series.

“Danfoss 2007 EnVisioneering Insights: An In-Depth Look at Advanced Energy Strategy and Technology” is a comprehensive report of the lively discussions and major findings from the three symposia held in 2006—in Kansas City, Chicago and Washington, DC.

“The purpose of the report is two-fold,” said John Galyen, president of Danfoss Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning, North America.“First, we wanted to identify the key environmental, energy and engineering issues related to policy, market forces and technology.Second, it provides a summary of the major energy and environmental codes, standards and legislation affecting the HVAC/R industry.”

In addition to the findings and reference guide, EnVisioneering Insights features opinion columns written by several thought leaders and a sneak preview of the 2007 EnVisioneering Symposium Series, which will focus on solutions and outcomes to meet short- and long-term energy needs.
