VoLuME 9 / IssuE 1 Dear readers, as the first decade of the 21st century drew to a close, the world turned its collective attention to a global economic crisis, the consequences of climate change and the impact of unprecedented demands for energy. although daunting, the associated challenges were also inspiring. new technologies emerged and policies were put in place to address clearly defined goals for improved energy efficiency, a reduced carbon footprint and more sustainable design in the built environment. as companies look to 2010, these goals will be part of trends that continue to shape business strategies. This issue of EnVisioneering Solutions looks at megatrends – everything from sustainability and water management to globalization and food safety – and the technologies and policies that support them. Many of these technologies are already impacting the way we use and produce energy. an article on pages 8–13 takes a closer look at the “smart Grid” – what it is, what it can do and what it requires, while a second article on pages 14–17 examines the contribution wind and water energy will make to power production and efforts to replace fossil fuel with renewable energy sources. finally, learn how angel stadium in anaheim, Calif., is addressing its own energy challenges. an unusual chiller retrofit starring danfoss Turbocor compressors hit a home run with stadium officials and design engineers, scoring points for efficiency, savings and comfort. as always, we welcome your suggestions and feedback on this issue. Mack Mcfarland, Congressman Paul Tonko, and Robert wilkins, president of danfoss north america, discuss energy challenges at the 12th EnVisioneeringsM symposium. story on page 22.
