Delta Electronics Head Office in Samutprakarn Receives LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council

Samutprakarn, Thailand, August 4, 2017- Delta Electronics (Thailand) PCL. head office in Bangpoo, Samutprakarn has received the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification in the EBOM (Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance) category. It is also the first company in Thailand to have received the certification under the EBOM category. LEED is one of the most globally recognized green building certification programs developed by the non-profit U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s green features, allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high performing, healthy and cost-effective buildings.

Delta’s head office is certified in all seven categories of LEED, namely, Sustainable Sites, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, Water Efficiency, Innovation in design and Regional Priority Credit. Delta attained perfect scores on the sections for Innovation in Operations and Regional Priority Credits.

The Gold certification was made possible with many enhancements made to existing facilities and several new installations. Delta had installed many of its own energy saving products and solutions including Delta’s solar energy solution which produces 4.4MWh from rooftop solar panels on the building and car park shelters; Delta’s photovoltaic inverter with high energy conversion efficiency at 98.5% which can generate over 8 million KWh of electricity per year; Delta’s energy saving Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) elevator, Delta’s data center solutions and the company’s proprietary energy management software and more.

In addressing water related issue, the company has saved 35% of water in 2016 with major projects like harnessing recycled water from waste water treatment and rainwater storage systems. For the enhancement of air quality and reduction in electricity consumption in the building, some key projects include choosing low emitting products, banning smoking inside the building, coating the roof with white color to achieve Solar Reflective Index (SRI) of 78 or higher; using Delta’s energy saving HVAC system, replacing conventional lighting with LED type and installing intelligent lighting system.

The company will continue to pursue Platinum certification in the coming months as part of its relentless sustainable development effort guided by the company’s mission- “To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow.”
