It is becoming increasingly important to provide people with safety, a sense of security, comfort, and sustainability in today's world that is burdened by global warming as well as increasing resource and energy constraints. Moving toward green lifestyles is essential to addressing these social and environmental challenges.
A rendering of Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (Fujisawa SST)
Panasonic is contributing to the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (Fujisawa SST) as a leading company to spearhead advanced environmental initiatives and provide a business model for human populations around the world to live with safety, a sense of security, comfort, and sustainability.
The Fujisawa SST will showcase our "entire solutions" business, applying our "comprehensive solutions for the entire house, entire building, and entire town" concepts. Specifically, the Fujisawa SST will combine our energysaving technologies in energy creation, storage, and management-including our Smart Energy Gateway (SEG) technology, which connects equipment and devices over a network-with our objectives for a safe and reliable, energy-efficient living environment.
We also plan to preinstall solar power generation systems, household storage battery systems, and other technologies and eco solutions across Fujisawa SST, including within homes, housing complexes, and commercial, welfare, and public facilities. In total, these activities will help reduce our CO2 emissions and household water consumption, as well as promote biodiversity through the concept of "wind creation and green networks."
This revolutionary "eco-town" concept has already resulted in a unique collaboration and partnership between Panasonic and eight other leading companies, and the Fujisawa City, a town located approximately 50 km west of Tokyo, Japan.
Bringing together and deploying the best technologies and know-how from our partner companies, we are constructing this innovative smart town on Panasonic's former factory site in the Fujisawa City, and we expect to complete this project during fiscal 2014.
All partners have committed to work closely together throughout every phase of the project, from the master planning stage to the actual operations of the town that will ultimately house about 1,000 households.
In addition, Fujisawa SST has inspired similar concepts and projects in other parts of the world, including Panasonic's participation in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City project. By implementing our home energy management systems and linking them to the regional or community energy management systems, we will optimize energy use across the entire community and reduce the negative environmental and social impacts caused by rapid urbanization.
