Problems with town development

Sustainable and disaster-proof eco town development

Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, there has been utilizing the photovoltaic power generation systems and storage batteries and increasing demand for the building of disaster-resistant, safe, peaceful and eco-friendly towns. The goals of the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town is to create a sustainable town where making the most of the blessings of nature and promoting local production for local consumption. Moreover, we aim to realize a safe, peaceful life for residents by linking and using electricity and information networks. We need to create practical measures to achieve these goals.

Working with Fujisawa City and its eleven partner companies [Accenture, Dentsu Inc., Mitsui Fudosan Group (Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd, Mitsui Fudosan Residential Co., Ltd.) , Mitsui & Co., Ltd., Nihon Sekkei, Inc., Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation, ORIX Corporation, PanaHome Corporation, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Limited, Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. in alphabetical order], Panasonic aims to open Fujisawa SST in spring 2014 and to create a smart town through the concerted efforts of local government, businesses, and residents.

Initiatives

Bringing energy to life based on a new concept, specifically actual lifestyles

Panasonic’s vision is to become a Green Innovation Company, achieving both business growth and environmental contributions. As part of its efforts to make this vision a reality, as a business owner, Panasonic is now promoting the development of Fujisawa SST. In this project, a new concept and process will be adopted to build the town by designing spaces first with a primary focus on services based on people’s lifestyles and creating an optimal smart infrastructure. In Fujisawa SST, Panasonic will offer its unique solutions from an Eco & Smart perspective by providing eight smart services that will comprise five categories for smart lifestyles (energy, security, mobility, healthcare, and community), plus club service, finance, and asset management. With bringing energy to life for residents as the town concept, we will provide services that enhance people’s lives with photovoltaic power, security, mobility, community, and healthcare. Furthermore, a town management company will be established to provide all stakeholders with one-stop services. A new scheme will be put in place to enable the town to continually evolve by supporting the development of a community that can create new value in daily life and by incubating new services based on feedback from residents and through industry-government-academia collaboration. The unparalleled town building, where as many as 1,000 families will live, will serve as a new business model both within Japan and overseas.
