Delta Electronics’ Latest Energy-Efficient Solutions Enable NCTU to Win an
“Energy Efficiency Award” at Solar Decathlon Europe 2014
VERSAILLES, France -- July 11, 2014
Delta Electronics (TWSE:2308), a global leader in power and thermal management
solutions headquartered in Taiwan, today announced its latest high efficiency
solutions enabled the “Orchid House”, built by the Unicode team from National
Chiao Tung University (NCTU), to win the 3^rd place “Energy Efficiency Award”
at the Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 held at the Chateau de Versailles, France.
Delta’s high efficiency solutions include solar photovoltaic power generation,
energy storage, energy monitoring, and environmental control.
The “Energy Efficiency Award” recognizes the best teams in system design,
architectural design, and energy efficiency. Mr. Harrison Fraker, a judge at
the competition, said, “This evaluation considers not only the active side of
energy conservation but also the jury pays special attention to each team’s
ability to save energy passively from the design standpoint. Many teams have
performed remarkably in this regard through the use of advanced techniques
that have certainly inspired admiration from the judges.”
Delta’s Chief Brand Officer and Delta Foundation’s Executive Director
Shan-Shan Guo said, “The 'Orchid House' utilizes advanced solutions for energy
management, storage and solar power generation developed by Delta. Through
Delta’s professional assistance, the NCTU was one of the leading teams to pass
the inspection of the energy system. In addition, the 'Orchid House' enables
even higher energy savings through synergies between its design and our
environmental control platform. Utilizing Delta-branded products at this
international event strengthens our efforts towards environmental education
and the promotion of sustainability."
Delta supported NCTU through the integration of the company’s energy systems.
The Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 has been held since late June 2014 and
consists of 20 university teams from all over the world. The teams were given
only 10 days to complete the construction of green buildings at the Chateau de
Versailles. This is the first time that a team from a Taiwanese university has
participated at the Solar Decathlon and it was a remarkable example of
cooperation between enterprises and academic institutions. In addition to the
“Energy Efficiency Award”, the “Orchid House” also became the first team from
Asia to win the “Urban Design, Transportation & Affordability Award” (UDTA).
Delta’s solution for the “Orchid House” consists of Delta’s BEMS (Delta
Building Energy Management System) and the Battery Energy Storage Solution
