A lifestyle with virtually zero CO2 emissions in an entire house
'eco ideas' House opened.
An eco-themed showroom called 'eco ideas' House was opened on the premises of Panasonic Center Tokyo (Tokyo, Japan) in April 15, 2009.
In 'eco ideas' House, Panasonic introduces a lifestyle with virtually zero CO2 emissions in an entire house which is realized by combination of our advanced technologies for saving, creating, and storing energy, and natural blessings such as wind, light, water and heat. We present various products, technologies, and ideas which contribute to a lifestyle with virtually zero CO2 emissions in an entire house, assuming a lifestyle three to five years into the future.
Realize a lifestyle with virtually zero CO2 emissions in 201X
Supposing that CO2 emissions from power consumption at home are 100 in 1990, it is possible to make it virtually zero in 201X by the following three initiatives:
Saving energy: thoroughly enhance energy-efficiency performance of home appliances
An amount of power consumption of home appliances is reduced thoroughly with Panasonic's own energy-saving technologies and ideas, while maintaining convenience and comfort at the same level. Also energy-saving performance of building materials, housing equipment and the house structure is improved. Moreover, status of home appliance operation is visualized by connecting them through network with HEMS (Home Energy Management System), which leads to more efficient control.
Creating and storing energy: create and store an amount of energy we use by ourselves
Electricity used at home is generated at home with optimum operation of household fuel cells and solar power generators. In a peak time when demand of electricity hits at the greatest, it is also possible to use electricity stored in accumulator batteries to fill a gap between demand and supply.
Making use of natural blessings
With the combination of advanced technologies and traditional Japanese wisdom which makes use of natural blessings such as coolness, warmth and brightness, Panasonic aims for realizing more comfortable lifestyle.
Home appliances, building materials, housing equipment and the house structure presented in 'eco ideas' House have been developed from cutting-edge technologies and know-how of three Panasonic Group companies, Panasonic Corporation, Panasonic Electric Works and PanaHome. The new facility represents Panasonic Group's continued efforts to provide solutions for an entire house.
Through the 'eco ideas' House, Panasonic offers the latest information and ideas on ecological lifestyles, and will gather public opinion to reflect upon its group-wide eco initiatives. As part of it, the dialogue with environmental experts, NPO and the press is going to be held on the following day, 16th, which will be reported later. Jointly with stakeholders, Panasonic aims for living in harmony with the global environment.
