Azbil Corporation Was Selected for "Energy-Saving Survey Project by IT" in ASEAN Countries Supported by METI Business Wire TOKYO -- June 29, 2012 Azbil Corporation (TOKYO:6845) has announced that it has reached an agreement with Pendinginan Megajana Sdn Bhd in Malaysia (hereinafter, Megajana) to conduct an energy-saving survey of Megajana's district cooling facilities in Cyberjaya, a suburb of Kuala Lumpur, using Azbil's technology for optimum operation of utility facilities. This energy-saving survey is an activity based on the "Asia Knowledge Economy Initiative" which the Japanese government proposed at the ASEAN Economic Ministers Meeting in 2008 as a mid- to long-term framework for Japan-ASEAN cooperation. The "Asia Knowledge Economy Initiative" aims to contribute to building a sphere of higher knowledge economy in Asian countries by utilizing technological innovation by IT and providing the experience and know how cultivated in Japan, while also responding to the future development of IT and the demand for a low-carbon society in Asia. The energy-saving survey for this agreement was entrusted to the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) for fiscal 2012's "Support for IT utilization aimed at fostering a knowledge economy in Asia (promoting Green IT)." Azbil, a member of JEITA, will conduct the energy-saving survey for Megajana. For the survey, Azbil will install measurement devices as needed, collect and analyze operation data and propose energy-saving solutions, with the aim to contribute to energy conservation and CO reduction in Malaysia. The survey result and proposal for achieving optimum operation will be provided at the end of November. Azbil's technology for optimum operation of utility facilities realizes significant energy saving and CO reduction for utility facilities supplying electricity, steam, cold water, hot water, compressed air, etc. for factories and buildings. This technology, which requires no new and expensive devices, can maximize efficiency of the entire utility facility by coordinating and optimizing operations of the entire existing utility facility with control technologies. The results of this technology in Japan show it is possible to achieve a 2% to 5% cut in total energy consumption. Azbil Corporation Founded in 1906. Azbil Corporation pursues "human-centered automation," which aims to contribute to people's safety, comfort and fulfillment and also to global environmental preservation.
