  National Tsing Hua University Unveils Green Building "Delta Hall"
Delta Electronics and NTHU Commence Cloud Collaboration
 
   
   








Taipei, Taiwan, October 13, 2011 – National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) and Delta Electronics jointly announced today the inauguration of "Delta Hall". This green academic building was completed after two years of construction with a NT$200 million donation from Delta Electronics' founder and chairman, Mr. Bruce Cheng, and the government's "University Ranking Improvement Subsidy". Delta Hall was certified with a Bronze Grade Green Building Label. The university's College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Institute of NanoEngineering and MicroSystems will utilize the new building. It will also host the "Joint Research Center of NTHU and Delta Group" for various research projects such as new energy source exploration, energy storage, conservation, environmentally-friendly electronics and power supplies, and more. During the commencement ceremony, both parties signed a "Cloud Collaboration Agreement" to facilitate further cooperation between the industrial and academic sectors.

To fulfill Delta's mission "To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow," Delta Hall was constructed with minimal ground leveling to accommodate its existing landscape, whereas the large room-span was isolated into a basement. Structurally, the building incorporates modularized sizes and energy conservation designs that emphasize ventilation and sun-screening. Delta Hall was awarded the Bronze Grade Green Building Label by Taiwan's Ministry of the Interior, and has passed six green building criteria for 1) Greenness; 2) Water retention; 3) Energy saving; 4) Indoor environment; 5) Water resources; and, 6) Sewage and Garbage Improvements, which will effectively reduce the building's future energy costs. Meanwhile, Delta Hall utilizes solar power systems and LED lighting equipment developed by Delta, which reduce power consumption by up to 20% for more effective energy savings.

NTHU President Chen Lih-Jun commented that Chairman Bruce Cheng was highly devoted to environmental protection and promoting environmentally-friendly education. Delta has long cared for the well-being of planet Earth, and is committed to green engineering, recycling, reuse, and waste management. Delta won Global Views Magazine 2011 CSR Award once again, and in September 2011 Delta was ranked among Taiwan's top 20 global brands—the first time ever a power electronics and energy business was selected. Delta's position as "a highly efficient and reliable provider of energy conservation solutions" has undoubtedly gained recognition from consumers.

President Chen Lih-Jun said that since his first day as president he has aimed to green NTHU and make it into a renewable energy campus, which coincides with Delta's mission on "To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow." He commented that although modern scientific achievements provide humanity with unlimited benefits, they also create major problems for our survival, such as the depletion of natural resources, energy shortages, climate change, and the deterioration of our environment. Currently, more than 30% of the Earth's energy is used for air-conditioning and lighting. The green building concept extends from the idea of searching for alternative energy sources, and it involves incorporating much of our energy-related knowledge into architecture, which is critical for energy conservation. Delta Hall signals a commitment by NHTU to develop a green campus, and it possesses special meaning for all of us. President Chen Lih-Jun expressed his gratitude toward Delta for helping NTHU to achieve its vision for a green campus.

Mr. Bruce Cheng commented that NTHU is widely acclaimed for its proud history and honored traditions. After a hundred years, it has grown into a world-renowned academic institute applauded for its accomplishments in academic research. Delta is grateful for the opportunity to construct the "Delta Hall" green building that will provide NTHU instructors and pupils a healthy and environmentally-friendly learning environment, while promoting the benefits of LED lighting and solar power generators. In addition, both parties signed the Cloud Collaboration Agreement and committed to creating an academic "Green Cloud" based on their ideals about environmental protection and expertise in energy conservation. We expect more outstanding accomplishments from the R&D collaboration between Delta and NTHU.

Delta and NTHU kicks off an industry-and-university cooperative program on cloud computing related technologies. Delta will sponsor NTHU 3 years of cloud computing technology research projects and NT$ 200 million worth of cloud infrastructure hardware and services. Under the cooperative program, NTHU will assemble a team of 50, consisting of elite professors and students, to develop a set of advanced distributed cloud computing middleware, which will be installed on to the Delta-sponsored cloud racks in the campus to construct a hybrid cloud with the central cloud based at Delta PJ Data Center - the "Ultra energy efficient cloud computing data center". Shall resources become insufficient while scale-up, the bursting request may be redirected to Delta's PJ Data Center; alternatively, this Delta's data center may also serve as a backup site or for disaster recovery. This platform also allows NTHU to conduct teaching, technology development, research, and experiment on top.

Delta Hall is located inside the campus grounds of NTHU, where the Red House originally existed. The initial design incorporated Delta's commitment to environmental protection, its success in promoting green buildings, as well as consideration for geographic, climate, wind, temperature, and humidity factors to create a sustainable, comfortable, energy-saving, and environmentally-friendly green building. Construction work commenced in October 2008. The steel-reinforced concrete building spans two stories underground and nine stories above ground on a foundation approximately 2,853 square meters (863 pings) in area; the floor area totals 29,185 square meters (8,828 pings). The building exterior preserves the appearance of the old "Red House"; and it emphasizes the importance of "the humanities, arts, and technologies" as well as a "green campus".

In addition to the architect's briefing and the ribbon cutting, the ceremony also included a demonstration by the "Joint Research Center of NTHU and Delta Group" on the results of its research projects, as well as eye-catching performances that inspired the crowd.
