Our partners Mitsubishi Electric are committed to significantly reducing carbon emissions, and their ground breaking energy saving products demonstrate this. As reputable manufacturers of air conditioning and heating systems, Mitsubishi Electric have embraced advanced technologies. Throughout their range of products and services there is an emphasis on sustainability in an effort to combat climate change.
The company have been credited with some of the most high performance, innovative and award winning products on the market. Among their list of priorities are:-
Mitsubishi Electric was founded almost 100 years ago, and has a long history of being leaders in the field. They have not only provided high performance, reliable products, but have helped specifiers, installers, corporate clients and consumers in general worldwide. They champion a need for change, pointing out that the way in which we use energy is experiencing a positive and significant transition. The overall move is towards an electric economy, affecting building, renovation and operation of building systems.
Mitsubishi Electric put it’s money where it’s mouth is, when it constructed the manufacturing facility Nagoya Works in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site is designed with energy efficiency in mind, featuring ‘planet saving’ technology. There are comprehensive management systems that include low voltage LED lighting and a 50kW photovoltaic roof system. The 48 Mitsubishi Electric high functioning e-series modular chillers, also provide a modern, low carbon solution. These are controlled by the Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) system.
The minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) set a benchmark for energy efficiency which may prove a challenge for old as well as new buildings. A fresh approach is needed if success is to be achieved. Mitsubishi Electric’s response to a reduction in energy consumption in building services is Green Gateway. They believe that comfort indoors is essential, but buildings must be made more efficient and use less carbon.
Understanding and debating the issues is the main goal of Green Gateway, and it’s five core principles inform their business practices. These are :-
The key to finding workable solutions and making a difference, includes collaborative, open and inclusive dialogue. Doing the right thing involves working with others towards environmental solutions, and employing renewable energy sources wherever possible.
Mitsubishi Electric plan to become a leading global green company by their 100th anniversary in 2021. They are researching the creation of high voltage, large-current SiC (silicon carbide) power devices. These must incorporate lower power loss along with higher functionality.
An important part of this ultimate vision, is the advancement of the ability to recycle plastic, and they have so far achieved some impressive results. Three of the main plastics to be found in common home appliances are polypropylene, polystyrene and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene. The amount of high grade plastic that can now be recycled and used in the manufacture of new products has increased from 6% to 70%.
Mitsubishi Electric works with it’s customers to improve their energy efficiency in factories, buildings and production lines. This allows customers to be more competitive while saving energy via building management systems, air conditioning, lighting and elevators.
Along with it’s extensive range of HVAC products and systems, Mitsubishi Electric has now entered the UK’s chiller market. In January 2018, Climaveneta became a branded product family within the Mitsubishi Electric portfolio. It’s advanced, state of the art Chiller products and air handling units, come with the company’s dedication to service and quality. Climaveneta is a new generation of water chiller, allowing high sensible cooling and room temperatures which are stable.
