LG Electronics is strengthening its foothold as a provider of smart energy solutions in the Middle East and Africa markets.
LG’s representative line for its HVAC solution is the VRF system MULTI V, which is equipped with powerful and reliable ultimate inverter compressors, which are vital to the efficiency of a VRF.
LG inverter technology offers maximum efficiency in part-load as well as full-load conditions, with a large range of frequency operation and an enhanced compressor reliability.
The company also provides smart energy management with its BECON (Building Energy Control) Cloud Solution, an IoT-based platform.
Through numerous sensors in the BECON Cloud, remote real-time monitoring, energy efficiency management, and energy saving is possible.
One example of LG’s success is MEA’s first net zero energy city, the Sustainable City by Diamond Developers in Dubai.
Requiring a highly efficient HVAC sol-ution, needing a part-load operation and controlling and monitoring of AC units from a smartphone, all challenges were met by LG.
Expanding into the smart energy business with its technologies in HVAC solution, LG’s capabilities have been demonstrated in Korea’s LG Science Park, an R&D complex with an area of around 175,207m2.
Not only have the most up-to-date HVAC systems been adapted, but energy solutions for energy management and renewable energy facilities have been realised.
For instance, simulation for energy use based on information on weather, building facility data, and operating history is held to predict energy demand with BECON solutions and manage energy supply and demand.
Review and analysis of energy production, saving, and load is also undergone through renewable energy facilities for smart energy management.
James Lee, LG Electronics Middle East & Africa president, said: “Starting from 2020, the MEA region is welcoming key momenta with numerous international events and government-led construction projects that can lead to high demand in energy solutions.
“With LG’s smart energy solutions that can maximise energy efficiency, we will contribute to the changeover of MEA cities to become intelligent.”
