Danfoss sponsors EE Global 2011 during European Union Sustainable Energy Week

April 1, 2011

Danfoss, manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration and motion systems, will sponsor the Alliance to Save Energy’s EE Global Forum for the fourth consecutive year and participate in an executive dialogue session. The 2011 Energy Efficiency Global Forum (EE Global) will be held April 12-14 at the SQUARE Meeting Centre in Brussels, Belgium.

Danfoss Chief Reputation Office Ole Daugbjerg will participate in and moderate one of the Forum’s executive dialogue sessions. Titled “Building Sustainable Communities: Best Practices for Deploying EE in All Facets of Daily Life,” the session will showcase communities that have incorporated energy efficiency into every aspect of daily life - from how they got it done to the benefits being accrued. Isabel Dedrig, Environmental Advisor, Mayor of London, and Hon. Bruce Oreck, U.S. Ambassador to Finland and Chair of the League of Green Embassies, will join Daugbjerg in the discussion.

Now in its fourth year, EE Global is the only international event that focuses solely on energy efficiency from the perspective of all energy end-use sectors (buildings, industrial, transportation and consumer) and covers the cross-cutting issues of finance, policy, technology and market transformation. The three-day forum also seeks to build strategic alliances among international governments, business and the public interest sector.

EE Global features three plenary sessions and a series of 20 concurrent executive dialogue programs that focus on a variety of timely topics and touch upon every end-use sector. In addition, Solutions Showcase will allow experts to showcase their best practices and strategies for energy-efficient deployment. To enhance delegates’ learning experience, EE Global will also offer in-depth pre-conference workshops on Monday, April 12th.

This year’s forum is an official side-event of the sixth European Union Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW). EUSEW draws over 30,000 attendees and expands the pool of energy leaders who will be in Brussels during EE Global.

The inaugural EE Global was held in Washington, D.C., in 2007 and drew more than 850 exhibitors, speakers, media and attendees representing 32 countries.
