Ep. 15 - Indoor air quality in a post-pandemic world
Francis and EnVisioneering Exchange host John Sheff share a dialogue about the importance of indoor air quality, especially in a post-pandemic world.

Host John Sheff returns to the show, this time joined by Vince Canino, CEO of Smardt Chiller Group, Inc. John and Vince take a broad look at the future of the cooling industry, zeroing in on the vital role oil-free and variable-speed technologies—like Danfoss Turbocor ® oil-free centrifugal compressors—can play to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
Ep. 13 - Local Laws and Building Retrofit Market
Host, John Sheff is joined by John Mandyck to discuss New York Local Law 97. While this law only affects New York City and its residents, it is a good example of what cities throughout the US can do to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change. Specifically, Local Law 97 requires building owners to take responsibility for their building's carbon emissions and penalizes them for exceeding a set limit. The Johns talk about the challenges building owners face and what the industry can do to help.
