Delta Electronics, Inc., a global leader in power and thermal management
solutions, today announced its latest high efficiency solutions for solar
energy generation, storage, management and environment control systems will
power the “Orchid House,” which is built to compete at the 2014 Solar
Decathlon Europe by the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU). The

industry-leading energy conversion efficiency. From 2010 to 2013, our
solutions helped the world reduce up to 11.9 billion kWh in electricity
consumption, which is equivalent to a reduction of 6.38 million tons of carbon
emissions to the environment. Delta’s 11 certified green buildings, located
worldwide, have also helped save up to 11.6 million kWh in 2013. Supporting
NTCU Unicode’s project underscores Delta’s commitment to Corporate Social
