Public sector institutions turn to Johnson Controls for leadership in energy management
Company recently named preferred energy services provider in Delaware
MILWAUKEE ? (March 25, 2010) ? Public sector institutions, including state and municipal governments, K-12 school districts and state universities across the nation continue to recognize the value of energy efficiency as a means to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions. These institutions are turning to Johnson Controls, Inc. (NYSE: JCI), the global leader in providing energy efficient and sustainable products, services and solutions, for energy efficient upgrades to aging building infrastructure.
The state of Delaware recently designated the company as a preferred energy services provider by the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (DESEU).
DESEU is a comprehensive program designed to help Delaware generate energy and cost savings, create new jobs, and support the environment. As one of the first energy services providers to be recognized by DESEU, Johnson Controls will have the opportunity to help improve the state?s government, academic, educational and municipal facilities on both the state and local levels. The recognition also enables the company to help Delaware move closer toward its goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30 percent by 2020.
?Energy efficiency has never been more important, as validated by the public sector?s continued demand for comprehensive energy efficiency solutions,? said Joy Clarke-Holmes, vice president, regional solutions, Mid-Atlantic region, Johnson Controls. ?Performance contracting energy programs are cost-effective and impactful solutions for today?s energy conscious and fiscally responsible government and educational institutions.?
Johnson Controls solutions in state, local government organizations
As the largest energy services provider in the U.S., Johnson Controls helps federal, state and local governments achieve greater energy efficiency through self-funded programs. These programs include systems integration, alternative energy solutions, and innovation, which address facility improvements, create new jobs, reduce GHG emissions and improve comfort and productivity in buildings. Recent projects of note include:
? The Indiana Department of Correction ? Johnson Controls helped five prison facilities throughout Indiana implement energy efficient upgrades including the installation of biomass boilers that utilize scrap wood from local businesses. The project helps boost the region?s economy through support of local commerce and is anticipated to save the state of Indiana more than $36 million in energy costs over the next 10 years.
? The Orange County Convention Center ? Johnson Controls developed a solar photovoltaic (PV) system for the second largest convention center in the nation, located in Orlando, Fla. The system features a 1.1 megawatt rooftop single-crystalline PV system, providing enough energy to power between 80 and 100 homes annually. The solar upgrades have resulted in significant reduction of energy costs and carbon emissions through renewable technology.
? The State of Maryland ? As part of Maryland Governor Martin O?Malley?s energy initiative, EmPOWER Maryland, Johnson Controls supported the retrofit of more than 118 government facilities throughout the state. The revamp is expected to save the state more than $29 million in energy costs through 2017. Johnson Controls also upgraded 40 Maryland State Police facilities, saving an anticipated $15.9 million in utility and operational costs over 14 years.

AHRI Signs Standards Agreement with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
Arlington, Va. (March 15, 2010) -- On a recent trip to the middle east, Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) President and CEO Stephen Yurek signed cooperative agreements with the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Association (SASO) and the UAE's Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority, ESMA, aimed at further harmonizing HVACR and water heating testing and rating standards globally. The agreement calls for SASO and ESMA to adopt AHRI's standards as Saudi, and UAE national standards, respectively, in some cases with regional adaptations.
In recent months, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates have begun to place a new emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental protection. With personal visits in November 2009 and February 2010, AHRI has signaled in a very serious way its intent to work closely with the governments of those nations to use AHRI standards and performance certification programs to help them meet with efficiency and environmental goals and to further global harmonization of standards and certification programs.
"This agreement is an important first step in what we hope and expect will be on ongoing, very productive relationship," Yurek said. Our active involvement in this region not only helps us expand our global reach, but also helps our member companies that do business in the region compete on a level playing field with other manufacturers," he said.
Discussions are underway between AHRI, SASO and ESMA about holding a series of workshops is that could lead to an agreement on adoption of certification in the near future. The Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority (ESMA) has invited AHRI and other private parties, including AHRI member companies to apply to participate in ESMA standards development and conformity assessment committees that ultimately will develop Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for the UAE.
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is the trade association representing manufacturers of air conditioning, heating and commercial refrigeration equipment. An internationally recognized advocate for the industry, AHRI develops standards for and certifies the performance of many of these products. AHRI's 300 member companies account for more than 90 percent of the residential and commercial air conditioning, space heating, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment manufactured and sold in North America.
