Carrier's parent to receive $10m energy efficiency funding
UNITED Technologies, Carrier Air Conditioning's parent company, is to receive around $10m for its role in new research and development of technologies to improve energy efficiency in buildings.
The investment to the United Technologies Research Center is part of the US Department of Energy's recently announced $122m in funding for the Energy Innovation Hub, a consortium of public and private organizations that will address energy efficiency in existing and new buildings as well as economic and workforce development in Philadelphia.
'This is a strong endorsement of the role of United Technologies as a leader in sustainability and energy efficiency, and we expect our technical collaborations will enable new products and solutions and fundamentally change the current energy consumption profile of existing and new buildings,' said Dr J Michael McQuade, UTC senior vice president, science and technology.
