The Security Show is a huge exhibition held every year in Japan. As the name suggests, this exhibition includes all the products of the security and safety industry. All products, technology, systems, and services related to protection from crime in offices, stores, public facilities, and homes, are showcased in this exhibition. This year the show was organized by Nikeei Inc. at Tokyo International Exhibition Center, for a period of four days from March 8 to 11, 2011.
This year Panasonic introduced its concept of Wireless power transmission station with a solar panel tablet and dedicated wireless charging pads, at the Security Show. With this concept, you will just have to place the phone or any other device, on the table for charging it. All that is required for a device to get charged this way, is that it must support QI technology. The center of the table comprises of a set of solar panels for QI Wireless Power transmission technology.
Though most details about the product, like how long it will take to charge the device, were not given by the Panasonic staff, they confirmed that this Solar Table with Wireless power transmission will be available for sale either by the end of this year or in early 2012. It was also declared that a set of dedicated QI Batteries that will fit Panasonic mobile phones will be given away with the Solar Table.
Tokyo—Panasonic laid out a plan today to weave together its many divisions to become the largest company in the world when it comes in green electronics.
By 2018, the company wants to obtain 30 percent or 1 trillion yen ($12 billion) of its expected revenue from its energy systems business. Now, the group accounts for approximately 15 percent of revenue.
Panasonic also hopes to hit a carbon dioxide peak from its operations and from the way consumers use its products to peak in the same year. If it hits this mark, carbon emissions will be roughly level with 2010emissions and 120 million tons less than a business-as-usual scenario.
Approximately 16 percent of the materials used in new products will come from reclaimed and recycled materials and 99.5 percent of waste generated at factories will be recycled. It will place an emphasis on replacing conventional chemicals with sustainable materials.
The goal will largely come from three large product groups: energy-efficient appliances, components, and grid equipment; batteries and power storage; and renewable energy systems like solar panels and fuel cells. Ideally, Panasonic will be able to position itself as a global supplier, similar to the strategy taken by General Electric and Siemens in recent years.
After merging with Sanyo, Japanese giant Panasonic believes that by the year 2020 every home will produce enough clean energy for its own needs. The company has talked about plans being put in place to step up change to enable homes to run off-grid within the next decade.
Referred to as GT 12 (Green Transformation 12), the new plan will focus on research and development of eco-friendly technologies for the future. Panasonic is looking at every aspect of energy production and energy storage, which will help them become dominant in energy management.
Panasonic has already developed a laptop prototype that uses a DMFCto offer five hours of battery life on a 50cc dose of liquid methanol. The company now believes that time has come when houses will become autonomous in terms of technology and consumers will generate their own energy using solar panels or fuel cells.
Among the specific initiatives outlined, InSpec has created a new division called InSpec Energy Solutions to pursue broad market adoption of energy efficiency and resource conservation projects, including commercial-scale and utility-scale solar integration.
InSpecGroup notes that it has previously completed a 166 kW PV array nearPortland's international airport. The system uses SANYO’s HIT Power solar modules.
The solar electric truck features Sanyo’s own solar panels and Li-ion batteries that enable the truck to travel 130km on a single charge.
The onboard batteries are recharged in 16 hours of sun exposure or in just8 hours using an AC wall outlet. The truck features nine 210W solar panels that have a capacity of 1.89KW and an estimated total energy supply of around 2000KWh. Solar energy is stored in 3510 cylindrical Li-ion batteries.
