Jeff Peltola, director of Budget, Rates and Efficiency at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, spoke at the symposium.

City leaders, building owners, engineers, builders, managers and other stakeholders met in Denver in June to discuss the growing concerns over energy and climate change in the building industry. “The Owner Nexus: Will Building Owners Transform Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment?” was part of the Danfoss EnVisioneering Symposium series.

Among the key findings at the symposium:

n The built environment is taking a new shape and will continue to move in a more energy-efficient direction in the coming years.

n The driving forces behind the transformation are energy costs and the codes and standards set in place.

Danfoss’ next symposium will be held Nov. 14 in Carlsbad, CA. For more information,
