Applying controls to reduce building running costs

Mitsubishi Electric has produced a 16-page brochure highlighting the financial and performance benefits of taking full control of a building’s energy use. It seeks to help building operators optimise the performance of their air-conditioning system to reduce running costs and minimise carbon emissions.
