Successful in providing outstanding energy-saving solutions for high-class apartments and hotels around the world, Mitsubishi Electric continues to bring to Vietnam market the solution to optimize the operating costs, while affirming the pioneer position in the field of Building Solutions.

What is the energy-saving solution for high-class apartments?

Currently, office buildings, hotels, apartments account for 20 ~ 30% of the total national electricity consumption, of which 40 ~ 50% of the power consumption of the building is for heating and ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC). Therefore, reducing power consumption is not only a matter of government concern but also a complex problem for investors and real estate service businesses.
