Delta Electronics inaugurates green U.S. headquarters

Los Angeles, Oct. 23 (CNA) Delta Electronics Inc. (???), one of Taiwan's leading power management system suppliers, announced Friday the inauguration of its American headquarters which is an energy-efficient complex built on the back of the company's years of efforts in green energy technology development. The new complex, located in the City of Fremont, California, is designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum and net zero standards followed in the United States, Delta Electronics said. The Taiwanese high-tech giant said that the opening of the green headquarters in Fremont showed that the company has entered a new milestone in its efforts to reduce carbon emissions and become a more eco-friendly corporation. Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison attended the inauguration ceremony among more than 400 guests. Harrison repeatedly invited the guests to give a standing ovation and applaud Delta Electronics' achievement in environmental protection. The mayor expressed its gratitude to Delta Electronics founder and honorary chairman Bruce Cheng (???), saying that the new headquarters will help Fremont become a new model for green energy applications. California is one of the states in the U.S. which has made massive efforts in environmental protection and green energy development. Delta Electronics' new headquarters in Fremont is the first building in the city to obtain the LEED Platinum and net zero certificate so that the Taiwanese firm's efforts in the area have been recognized overseas. The American headquarters, with an area of 180,000 square feet, is expected to generate more than 1,000 megawatts hour in electricity a year on the back of Delta Electronics' leading solar photovoltaic power system, the company said. In addition, the new complex is equipped with an advanced geothermal heating and cooling system which is able to cut heating, ventilation and air conditioning energy consumption by 60 percent compared to traditional heating and cooling systems, the firm added. Since 2005, Cheng said, Delta Electronics has started to build energy-efficient buildings for company use. Cheng added that in the past 10 years, his company has completed the construction and renovation of a total of 21 green buildings. Cheng said that Delta Electronics will share its green energy experiences with international participants at a side event of the upcoming UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) scheduled in Paris for December. "This aligns with the company's mission to provide innovative, clean, and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow," Cheng said. (By Tsao Yu-fan, Han Ting-ting and Frances Huang)
