Exhibition Highlights

Showcases with Double Air Curtain Technology
Ordinarily, 35% of the energy consumed by supermarkets may be attributed to freezer/refrigeration systems. When combined with lighting and air conditioning, this figure rises to 85%. Showcases equipped with Panasonic's unique Double Air Curtain Technology trap cold air inside to maintain freshness while reducing wasteful energy consumption. In the exhibition, Panasonic proposed showcases using this Double Air Curtain Technology for convenience stores. By also managing the energy used by lighting and air conditioning together, Panasonic is able to dramatically lower the energy consumption of retail stores.

POS Workstation
Panasonic's POS Workstation, which is being exported to more than 60 countries around the world, supports smart store operation by keeping track of inventory and analyzing consumer behavior.

LED Lighting for Retail Stores
Of course, the LED lighting that Panasonic proposes for retail stores saves energy, but it also creates an optimal shopping environment by controlling color tones to match different settings and times of day.

Hand Dryers and Air Purifiers
In addition to Panasonic hand dryers that are used in many fast food restaurants across China, Panasonic air purifiers that remove even PM2.5* particulate matter are proposed to create a more comfortable, enjoyable store environment.

*PM2.5 is a general term for particulate matter that is 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter.
