Comprehensive Energy Solution
Virtually Zero CO2 Emissions Throughout the Entire Home
While people try to realize a higher standard of living, the increase of CO2 emissions from households is becoming a concern. As a company that provides a range of products deeply rooted in people’s lives, Panasonic offers Comprehensive Solutions for the Entire Home, which range from stand-alone home appliances to entire houses themselves, with the four concepts of “create energy,” “store energy,” “save energy,” and “manage energy” to comprehensively reduce CO2 emissions. First, we reduce energy consumption of the entire house by increasing the energy efficiency through reduction of power consumption of appliances during use and higher insulation efficiency of the house itself. For energy yet necessary even after saving, we create energy by promoting photovoltaic power generation and fuel cells, and store energy by drawing on household lithium-ion accumulator batteries. Through this energy management system, we aim to have virtually zero CO2 emissions throughout the entire home. This concept is displayed at our “eco ideas HOUSE” in Tokyo, Japan since April 2009.
In October 2011, through PanaHome Corporation, we launched sales of houses that aim to create virtually zero CO2 emissions throughout the entire home.
In addition, Eco Solutions Company developed “Energy Creation-storage Linked System for the Home,” which supplies stable energy in homes in the event of power outages, and started taking orders from March 2012. This system links solar batteries and lithium ion battery units to enable efficient utilization of power in blackouts as well as in normal times, and contributes to reducing the power consumption peak and environmental impact. The “CASART TERRA SMART,” which is equipped with our Energy Creation-storage Linked System for the Home as well as high-level insulation of the house itself to enable a lifestyle with virtually zero CO2 emissions, was launched from PanaHome in April 2012. From this platform, we provide a lifestyle that is environmental, comfortable, and safe throughout the entire home.
Promoting Comprehensive Solutions for the Entire Town Worldwide
Through our energy systems business, we have extended the scope of comprehensive solutions beyond the entire home to stores, public, and other facilities, as well as entire towns to promote our solutions worldwide. In Japan, we are currently constructing the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (Fujisawa SST) within our former factory site in Fujisawa City, Kanagawa Prefecture, with the aim of opening the 1,000-household town by the end of March 2014. As projects outside Japan, Panasonic participated in the constructions of the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city and Dalian Best City in China, both with plans to introducing our energy management support system. In addition, we are teaming up with local government agencies in Singapore to take part in the total solutions test-bed project for Punggol Eco-Town public housing.
Aiming to expand our Energy Systems business, we achieved 519.3 billion yen in sales in fiscal 2012, and will contribute to people’s richer lifestyles and CO2 reduction while expanding our business.
