Danfoss is accepting entries for its tenth annual EnVisioneer of the Year award competition.
Launched in 2010, the competition recognizes North American original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), building owners, municipalities, contractors and end users 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 energy and environmental savings.
Interested participants may enter the competition by submitting an application by May 30, 2019. Applications will be reviewed and selected by a panel of third-party judges representing various disciplines.
In 2018, Danfoss recognized both Escambia County School District (Pensacola, Florida) and Multistack with EnVisioneer of the Year awards. Selected as a winner in the competition’s End User category, ECSD is using Danfoss AB-QM pressure independent control valves and Danfoss Turbocor oil-free compressors as part of high-efficiency HVAC systems. The solution has improved hydronic balancing and control, reduced chiller energy use by nearly 50 percent, and cut the district’s total energy costs by $2.5 million. Multistack, recognized as a winner in the competition’s OEM category, is using Danfoss Turbocor compressors to slash energy consumption and emissions for their customer, Royal Caribbean Cruises. Although outside of the traditional applications for Danfoss Turbocor compressors, partnership and collaboration on the project helped to yield 42 percent energy savings, in addition to the flexibility needed to meet tough applications.
