Mr. Ping Cheng, Delta's chief executive officer, said, "In line with Delta's corporate mandate, we continue challenging the frontiers of energy efficiency at product level, and through seamless integration of software and hardware, we expand our offerings to indoor-system and microgrid level energy management. By leveraging our core competence in high-efficiency power electronics with industry domain knowledge and collaboration with ecosystems, Delta is able to provide IoT-based solutions for its customers at its five strategic markets: Industrial automation, building automation, ICT infrastructure, energy infrastructure, and electric vehicles."
Ms. Shan-Shan Guo, Delta's chief brand officer, remarked, "At COMPUTEX Taipei 2018, we demonstrate how Delta is capable of fostering sustainable cities by developing innovative solutions that satisfy future energy demand. Thus, we are presenting an EV charging station complex that features a microgrid to offer optimal energy balance and management. Delta's booth also underscores energy education through visualization platforms that display various scenarios in microgrid operations."
The pillars of Delta's showcase at Taiwan's leading high-tech tradeshow are its smart building automation solutions and microgrid solution:
- Under the automated full-service store scenario, an IoT-based smart building automation solution integrates building management & control, LED lighting, and surveillance solutions, and energy management platforms developed by Delta and its subsidiaries LOYTEC, Delta Controls and VIVOTEK to provide the highest possible standards of sustainability, convenience, health and comfort. For example, Delta's UNO Indoor Environmental Quality Service Solution integrates indoor sensors, commercial heat exchangers, air purifier equipment, and modular air conditioning units to not only monitor in real-time levels of critical environmental factors in buildings, but also purifies the indoor air in case hazardous substances such as PM2.5 and TVOC threaten occupants.
- The microgrid-supported EV charging station at the booth includes Delta's ground-breaking V2H/V2G EV Charger, which is capable of bi-directional power transfer between the EV battery, home appliances and the electricity grid. The microgrid is created through Delta's power conditioning system and the containerized battery energy storage system, both already supporting a 4.6MW power plant in Ako, Japan and Taiwan Power Company's research center in Shulin, New Taipei City, Taiwan.
Delta will display its IoT-based smart green solutions at the Nangang Exhibition Center, stand M0110 during COMPUTEX Taipei, which is held from June 5th to 9th.
