Panasonic Brings Smart Eco Housing to Japan

Nov 13, 2012

On 7 November, 2012, Panasonic held a press conference to announce the development of the company's "Smart ecoie", or "Smart Eco House" in English, a smart home incorporating the company's energy technologies and knowledge and experience of design and materials.

Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, the Japanese government has introduced a wide variety of measures such as subsidies and accreditation systems in order to promote energy saving and the use of renewable energy. Interest in smart homes is also increasing with consumers and the market for smart homes is expected to grow.

The "Smart ecoie" is equipped with the company's energy related technologies, with solar panels for energy creation, storage batteries for energy storage, energy saving equipment as well as the Smart Home Energy Management System "SMARTHEMS", equipped with the "AiSEG", which connects the electrical equipment and appliances around the home for smart energy saving.

As well as the above "active" systems, the "Smart ecoie" also incorporates "passive design features" in the room layout, windows and ventilation which take advantage of the insulation and the elements, allowing energy to be used efficiently in the home throughout the year.
