Indian Firm Signs First Clinton Climate Initiative Development Agreement

An Indian company, K Raheja Corp, has signed the first Project Development Agreement under the Clinton Climate Initiative's Energy Efficiency Building Retrofit Program. The agreement calls for Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls to perform energy-efficiency retrofits in the Inorbit Mall, the largest mall in Mumbai, cutting greenhouse gas emissions by improving the energy infrastructure at the mall. The initiative will reduce energy costs and operating costs. Johnson Controls announced the signing Feb. 19.

The Johnson Controls Building Efficiency business provides HVAC&R equipment and control systems, industrial refrigeration, fire and security systems, and services for commercial, industrial, and residential buildings in countries around the world. K Raheja Corp (www.krahejacorp.com) is one of India's largest real estate developers, with offices in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, and Chennai. The company announced last year it will design future projects to conform to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System.

The Clinton Climate Initiative brings together energy service companies, the world's largest banks, and some of the world's largest cities to reduce energy consumption in existing buildings. "Johnson Controls is pleased to be working with such an innovative and progressive company in India," said Clay Nesler, vice president of global energy and sustainability for Johnson Controls. "We are especially proud that this agreement represents the first project in the world to be signed as part of the Clinton Climate Initiative."

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
