U.S. Senator Richard G. Lugar, a long-time advocate for energy independence, will discuss America’s global energy technology strategy at the third 2006 EnVisioneeringSM Symposium, to be held Dec. 4 at the Hotel Sofitel, Washington, DC.
The symposium is being organized by Global Strategy Initiative, a Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm. The symposium is sponsored by Danfoss, a world leader in research, development and production of mechanical and electronic components for applications in refrigeration and air conditioning, heating, and motion control.
Additionally, the symposium will feature Peter R. Smith, president of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, and senior officials from the U.S. Departments of State, Defense and Energy as well as the Environmental Protection Agency.
The symposium will be followed by a 90-minute reception.
The event will be hosted by John Galyen, president of Danfoss Refrigeration Air Conditioning North America. Galyen notes that world business and governments alike are facing new and profound energy challenges.
The symposium will address many key questions, including:
- How do U.S. policy makers and energy strategists see the challenge and how do they plan to address it?
- Where are the greatest risks and the genuine opportunities?
- Can developed and developing markets find common ground?
- What changes in our science, technology, market dynamics and way of doing business should be sought or expected?
- How can HVACR manufacturers respond to these issues?
