John W. Conover IV, president of the Trane commercial business in the Americas, will discuss energy-efficient building solutions in a presentation, Wednesday, April 16, on Capitol Hill. He will be participating in Great Energy Efficiency Day sponsored by the Alliance to Save Energy.
Entitled "Building for the Future: The Elements of Success," Conover's presentation will focus on sustainable solutions for business and the environment. It will cover trends in today's building environment, available technologies, case examples, and environmental and economic impacts.
Buildings currently consume one-third of the world's energy and global energy consumption is projected to increase 60% by 2030," says Conover. "The Great Energy Efficiency Day allows us to discuss real, practical solutions to reduce energy use and the carbon footprint without compromising economics or business performance. Policy makers in our nation's capital can use this event to better understand the wide range of actions that can be taken to make buildings operate more efficiently."
