Panasonic is Building a Sustainable Smart Town

Posted Fri Aug 26, 2011 at 09:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Not content with just building electronics, Panasonic is making its own city.

The folks at Panasonic are big believers in devices that save energy and alternate solutions to providing power, but up until now that belief has mainly been represented with their electronics. Things are about to change though, as Panasonic is helping to create an entire city.

Panasonic and a handful of other companies are teaming to make the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (SST) which will utilize energy saving devices and plenty more. The thousand homes in the town will all have solar panels that don’t interrupt the look of the place, home fuel cells and networks laid out in the most efficient way possible.

“After the Great East Japan Earthquake, there is renewed attention for energy infrastructures that are safe and secure with solar power generation systems and storage battery systems installed on a community basis,” says Panasonic.
