  MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC CORPORATION UNVEILS SIX NEW TECHNOLOGIES AT ANNUAL R&D
                                  OPEN HOUSE

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced six new technologies,
outlined below, at its annual Research and Development Open House held today
at its headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.


No. 2730
Electric Power Management System for Self-sustained Operation in Communities
Enables self-sufficient power supply for more than one week

The company announced today that it has developed a prototype electric power
management system that combines an ideal mix of storage batteries and
photovoltaic power generation for self-sustained operation in communities
during extended blackouts. The technology was achieved through the company’s
Smart Grid and Smart Community initiative.

No. 2731
Energy Management System with Demand-response Capability
Stabilizes power supply & demand management while minimizing electricity costs

The company announced today that it has developed the technology for an energy
management system that responds dynamically to supply-demand conditions. The
system automatically evaluates fluctuating power-generation costs and
electricity-market prices to determine optimized incentives for saving power,
thereby helping to stabilize supply and demand management while minimizing
costs and benefits for utilities and customers alike. The technology was
achieved through the company’s Smart Grid Demonstration Project initiative.

No. 2732
Regenerative Power Optimization Technology for Railway Energy Savings
Reduces total railway energy consumption by up to five percent

The company announced today its development of a new technology that reduces
total railway energy consumption by up to five percent through efficient use
of regenerative power from trains and optimized voltage control at multiple
railway substations. Commercialization is targeted at the fiscal year
beginning in April 2014.

No. 2733
Large-capacity SiC Power Module Technologies
World-leading capacity will lead to smaller, lighter equipment

The company announced today that it has developed large-capacity silicon
carbide (SiC) power module technologies incorporating all-SiC power devices
for unprecedented 1,200-volt, 1,200-ampere performance. The new technologies,
which have been incorporated in a prototype module, are expected to expand SiC
applications to factory automation equipment, elevators, escalators,
photovoltaic systems, wind-power generation systems and other industrial uses.

No. 2734
World’s Best Error-correction Technology for High-capacity Optical
Communication

The company announced today it has developed an error-correction technology
that achieves a coding gain of 12.0dB, the world’s highest level as of
February 14, 2013 according to internal research, for high-speed and
high-capacity optical communication systems over long distances. The
technology will be launched in the fiscal year starting in April 2014.

No. 2735
100 Gbps Optical Transmission Technologies for High-capacity Intercity
Communication

The company announced today it has developed an optical transceiver and
integrated optical transmitter module for 100 Gbps optical transmission per
wavelength that realizes 2.5 times the capacity of conventional intercity
optical networks. The technologies, which will help to meet fast-expanding
demands for intercity communication capacity, will be commercialized within
the fiscal year ending in March 2014.
