Mitsubishi's R&D activities are focused on manufacturing Mitsubishi elevators and escalators “Number One Green” in the industry. Otis claims its Gen2 machine-roomless elevators reduce energy consumption by 50 per cent of that of traditional units. Moreover, elevators are being incorporated with corridor illumination controls that help in reducing energy consumption in buildings. Furthermore, vendors are designing elevators that shut down their inside lighting until a passenger call arises.
