Panasonic was, of course, a major participant, displaying products based on its corporate theme, "Living on Solar Energy around the Clock." It proposed energy solutions based on its HIT photovoltaic modules and the residential energy creation-storage linked system it announced on February 23. In addition, wireless energy monitors, Panasonic's VIERA TVs, personal computers and smartphones also contribute to making energy visible, bringing Panasonic's concept of smart lifestyle into reality.
Other products displayed at the exhibition included a polycrystalline solar module developed for industrial/public applications and a variety of HIT solar panel installation methods that make good use of Panasonic's expertise in construction materials. Showing this fact exemplifies that Panasonic is not just a solar panel manufacturer, but also a comprehensive solutions company that can tailor to the individual needs of consumers.
