Manage Energy for Smart Control
Panasonic continues to develop its business and products based on comprehensive Energy Management that incorporates created energy, stored energy and saved energy. Only Panasonic's solutions provide original value through the synergy of an optimized energy management system, connecting devices and equipment that create, store and save energy. While improving the functionality and energy saving for each of our products, Panasonic also provides a comprehensive control system combining separate devices and equipment to create a synergy between energy, heat and information.
Tie up to HEMS System
Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS)
Panasonic's Smart Energy Gateway (SEG) complements the core functions of our HEMS.
Energy flow and consumption within your household can be monitored on displays such as Panasonic's VIERA TV by using Panasonic's SEG to connect up a Smart Meter (an electricity meter that incorporates a telecommunication function), a gas meter, a water meter and your domestic appliances. This configuration forms a complementary addition to Panasonic's solar power generation systems and household fuel cells that create energy, the household lithium batteries that store energy and our other energy-saving devices. The SEG thus allows you to understand at a glance your power use and CO2 emissions, supporting your energy-saving lifestyle.
Panasonic's future aim is to optimize energy control by managing all household appliances, devices and sensors through the Smart Energy Gateway.
AC/DC Hybrid Power Distribution System
Power is supplied from the power plant to the household in alternating current (AC).Conversely, power created by solar and storage batteries is direct current (DC). Panasonic's hybrid distribution system allows direct use of DC-to-DC compatible devices such as LED lighting, eliminating any power loss from current conversion.
