Super High Brightness DLP® * Projector

Used to project images onto large screens at concerts and convention halls. With high-power lamps, a new quad-lamp system, and a new liquid cooling system, the amount of power consumption, weight/volume, and noise all have been significantly improved compared with similar professional projectors by competitors. This has enabled us to realize an innovative evolution in the environmental performance of this projector.

[Model] PT-DZ21K

Fiscal 2012

Ni-MH batteries for Hybrid Vehicles

Achieved both high output and high durability through negative electrode material using superlattice hydrogen-absorbing alloys for HEVs. Established a new product genre for compact cars and sports cars. Improved the volume output density by 30% (compared to our HR-DP) and significantly contributed to the improvement of fuel efficiency of hybrid vehicles.

[Model] HR-DPX

Fiscal 2011

HIT photovoltaic module

Achieved the world-best cell conversion efficiency of 21.6% as a result of pursuing supression of incident light reflection, improvement in light-trapping effect, and high output from both sides of the cells and modules in HIT photovoltaic modules that have high conversion efficiency.

[Model] HIT-N240SE10

Fiscal 2010

Household fuel cell cogeneration system (ENE FARM)

A fuel cell generates electricity using an electrochemical reaction between hydrogen drawn from city gas and oxygen in the air, while at the same time heats water with the heat generated during the reaction. It is a system that combines both high electricity generation efficiency and energy efficiency.

[Model] FC unit: FC-109R13T Hot water storage unit: FC-W20D9R13T

Fiscal 2009

Blu-ray disk recorder

We reduced stand-by power consumption to 0.1 W,* down up to about 70% compared with our conventional models in 2008 (DMR-BW930/830/730/BR500) through power conservation circuit technologies including improvement in power supply efficiency.

  • * Under the following conditions: Quick start “off,” time display “off,” terrestrial digital attenuator “on,” BS and 110-degree CS digital antenna power “off,” and BS and 110-degree CS digital antenna output “off.”

[Model] DMR-BW950/850/750

Fiscal 2008

DCVPRO P2 series

With the adoption of semiconductor memory “P2 card” and high-speed transmission technology, power consumption in data copying was reduced to one-hundredth, and lifecycle media mass + maintenance parts mass were also reduced to one-tenth (compared with conventional Panasonic products)

[Model] AG-HPX500, AG-HPG10, AJ-HPX3000

Lifinity ECO Management System

Monitors electricity of each main and branch breaker to identify power consumption for one entire house or for individual devices. The monitoring data is edited in an easy-to understand manner to help conserve more energy.

[Model] BQEL36242S, WTZN281, MKN20W, etc.

Fiscal 2007

Plasma TV

Achieved the world’s first lead-free plasma display panel and the industry’s No.1 energy conservation performance.

[Model] TH-58PX600, TH-50PX60, TH-42PX60, TH-37PX600, TH-37PX60

Fiscal 2006

Drum-type washer/dryer

World's first tilted drum-type washer/dryers with a heat pump, which enables significant reduction in power consumption during the drying cycle through an energy-efficient drying method compared to the conventional method using a heater. Since it uses no water for dehumidification, the amount of water used for washing/drying is greatly reduced in comparison with the conventional water cooling drier.

[Model] NA-VR1000

Natural Fluid (HC) Refrigerator

These are refrigerators that use no CFCs as refrigerant or foam insulation material. Employing high-performance vacuum insulation material and developing a cooling system that brings out CFC-free performances, it has enhanced Japan's FY'04 energy-saving target by 220%.

[Model] NR-E461U

Energy-efficient IPD (Intelligent power device) during standby

A new control function is built into the power device to detect standby mode, and drastically reduces excessive electricity consumption during standby. IPDs can contribute to energy conservation in our entire society by application to many electric appliances.

[Model] MIP 3EX Series, MIP2 EX Series, MIP2 CX Series
