Towards a “Lifestyle with Virtually Zero CO2 Emissions throughout the Entire House”

In a world struggling with the problem of how to reduce CO2 emissions, Panasonic has put forward a number of proposals for a lifestyle with “virtually zero CO2 emissions throughout the entire house”.
Dramatic reductions in CO2 emissions can be achieved by improving the energy efficiency of home appliances, taking advantage of integrated home energy management systems (HEMS) and utilizing vacuum insulation technologies in building materials. Panasonic envisages a future in which all households can almost completely eliminate CO2 emissions through an optimum combination of solar power generation, fuel cells and storage batteries.

Panasonic's ‘Smart House’ showroom in Ariake, Tokyo, makes these concepts a reality. Visitors can experience Panasonic's vision of a lifestyle with virtually zero CO2 emissions throughout the entire house.
Panasonic continues to develop technologies and services that aim to reduce household CO2 emissions to virtually zero in line with this vision by 201X.

  • * Products comprising the house: The year of 1990: Latest models that we produced and marketed at that time in consideration of the rate of diffusion to general households at 10%. The year of 2009-201X: Latest products selected by Panasonic in consideration of the rate of diffusion to general households at 10% and changes in lifestyles (increase in the number and size of products used in the house).
