Bifacial photovoltaic module "HIT Double"

By sandwiching HIT photovoltaic cells front-to-back between layers of glass, their symmetrical structure allows the generation of electricity on both sides, giving a higher power output than regular one-sided modules.


Storage battery system using lithium-ion batteries

Not just for back-up in case of blackouts but as an effective means of reducing peak energy usage and ensuring a stable energy supply from the fluctuating natural energy sources. This 18kWh system is designed for shops and offices and can be augmented with additional battery units.


LED lamp Clear Type

Panasonic's unique floated-module LED on a translucent base delivers a warm glow similar to clear incandescent bulbs. As bright as a 20W incandescent bulb but with a power consumption of only 4.4W./p>


OLED lighting panel

This next-generation light source promises unprecedented applications for uniform surface lighting in any desired luminosity and colour rendition.


OLED lighting module

High rendition (overRa90) and luminosity (3000cd/m2) OLED in Panasonic's own "slide-in" panel. Easy to install in ultra-thin equipment applications. (9mm thick, frame 11mm)


"LUGA" shop LED module

This compact 50mm light engine fuses line dispensing technology on a ceramic base to deliver beautifully sharp shadows and light with an incredible 106lm/W efficiency and 50,000 hour product life.


Variable-colour LED unit

LED unit with synchronized, variable brightness and hue, reproducing the full colour curve.
2000K-2700K: both brightness and hue variable.
2700K-5000K: level brightness, variable hue.


Prototypes of new wiring devices

Panasonic's touch/push switches allow the intuitive adjustment of lighting levels with sensor and dimmer functions as well as wireless handset connectivity over long distances.
