Mitsubishi Electric Joins UN's 24/7 Carbon Free Energy CompactAiming to contribute to 100% carbon-free electricity


TOKYO, October 26, 2023 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has joined the 24/7 Carbon Free Energy Compact (24/7 CFE Compact), an international initiative established by the United Nations in 2021 with the goal of decarbonizing electricity worldwide. More than 130 organizations* from around the world have joined the Compact, including the U.S. government, major U.S. IT companies, utilities and investment companies, and financial institutions. The phrase "24/7 CFE" means that every kilowatt-hour of electricity consumption is met with carbon-free electricity sources everywhere, every hour of every day.**

Mitsubishi Electric offers a variety of energy-optimization technologies and solutions that align with 24/7 CFE Compact principles for the achievement of decarbonization. One is Multi-Region EMS, a cloud service that enables prosumers (companies) to manage decarbonization targets for all of their sites by optimizing the required number of environmental-value certificates to be purchased and also by transferring renewable-energy value among various sites. The service accumulates renewable-energy value in 30-minute increments*** to enable precise management of environmental value. Another representative offering from Mitsubishi Electric is BLEnDer® CN for Supplier, a line of packaged software products that enable power retailers in Japan to provide consumers with carbon-free electricity plans.

Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric will actively participate in 24/7 CFE Compact activities and contribute to the achievement of 24/7 CFE by continuing to develop advanced products, systems and solution businesses, in addition to contributing to the realization of eco-friendly infrastructure.
