Johnson Controls selected by Jewish Museum Foundation in Berlin for Energy Performance Contract

Project will significantly reduce energy and carbon emissions

GERMANY – (December 17, 2010) – Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), a global leader in delivering products, services and solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, today announced it was awarded an Energy Performance Contract (EPC) with the Jewish Museum Foundation in Berlin. Johnson Controls will, under the EPC, renovate the Jewish Museum to improve the energy efficiency of the museum and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Upon completion of the project in 2012, the Jewish Museum is expected to reduce its energy costs by 26 percent and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 31 percent.

“We are honoured to have been given the opportunity to improve the energy efficiency of this landmark museum in Berlin. Our business is highly focused on Energy Performance Contracting because it allows significant energy savings to be delivered at no risk to the owner. We are pleased to be part of the museum’s journey toward a more sustainable operation,” stated Agostino Renna, vice president and general manager, Johnson Controls Energy Solutions EMEA.

The museum’s building complex consists of two different types of architecture. Part of the complex was designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind and the other section of the complex consists of a Baroque building, built in 1735. The Jewish Museum presented unique challenges due to its differing architecture and the need to preserve the integrity of the complex’s building designs. Energy savings in the complex will be achieved through partial renovation of the building automation system and use of innovative LED lighting.

Control Solutions, Inc In addition, the ventilation system will be modified to use more outside air to cool the building. Also, air humidification will be optimized and ensured by environmentally friendly district heat, which will be generated from the central combined heat and power (CHP) system of Berlin, instead of using electric energy.

The total annual energy cost savings is estimated at 165,000 €.  The duration of the contract is 10 years.

The Jewish Museum sought help of the Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) - German Energy Agency for making its building more energy efficient and environment friendly. In April 2010 the German government and the foundation organized an Energy Performance Contract tender to which Johnson Controls participated and was selected.
