BEIJING, China – United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), a leading solutions provider in energy efficient buildings, is preparing to extend its support for China’s International Conference on Intelligent, Green and Energy-Efficient Building & New Technologies and Products Expo, now in its sixth year.
United Technologies has been the top sponsor of this event since it began in 2005, reflecting the corporation’s dedication to China’s campaign for energy-efficient buildings and reduced emissions. This year, United Technologies is ready to extend its commitment by signing an important memorandum of understanding with China’s Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) for future cooperation.
Under the agreement, which is scheduled for signing later in the conference, United Technologies and MOHURD will cooperate on promoting green building science and technology, conserving energy through demonstrations and pilot projects, supporting the conference and expo in future years, and encouraging eco-city development.
Also at the conference, Sandy Diehl, UTC Vice President of Integrated Building Solutions, delivered a keynote speech highlighting how technology can reduce energy waste in buildings and improve sustainable performance.
