Beijing, China (December 21, 2010) – China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) recently appointed Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), a global leader in delivering products, services and solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, as one of the first energy-savings service companies in China. Johnson Controls was awarded an “Energy Saving Service Institution Record Certificate” that qualifies the company to provide comprehensive building efficiency service and Performance Contracting (PC) in China.

In an effort to better manage and develop the energy-saving service market, the NDRC and Ministry of Finance (MOF) rigorously reviewed companies that operate in the market and selected its first list of energy-saving companies. Johnson Controls and other companies on the list are eligible for energy conservation subsidies, green low-interest loans, and tax reductions and exemptions as they provide expertise in air-conditioning, heat pump, lighting and other innovation solutions that contribute to improved building efficiency and reduced costs.

 “We are honored to be among the first energy-saving service companies recorded in the NDRC,” said Elvis Chan, vice president and managing director of Johnson Controls, Greater China. “The State’s ‘12th Five-year Plan Energy Saving and Emission Reduction Plan’ makes energy saving and emission reduction the focus of development in the construction, industry and transportation sectors. Johnson Controls is pleased to work with the Chinese government as it works toward a low carbon economy, contributing our expertise in the operation of energy efficient, sustainable buildings.”

The Chinese market and markets around the world recognize the positive influence of enhanced efficiency in reducing costs and improving energy security and environmental protection. By analyzing and evaluating energy use in buildings, Johnson Controls is helping the Chinese government effectively manage and control building efficiency through its new energy-saving mechanism, the Energy Management Contract. The building energy management services provided by Johnson Controls have resulted in reduced energy costs and enhanced building efficiency.
