In the field of new energy applications, Tetsuro Honma focused on hydrogen fuel cells and nickel-metal hydride batteries used in wind power generation scenarios. Focusing on the application of hydrogen energy batteries in factories, Panasonic is conducting empirical experiments on a comprehensive cold, hot and electric energy system at its Wuxi factory. It has already verified the possibility of hot and cold exchange and will continue to verify its economic advantages. In wind power generation, Panasonic provides nickel-metal hydride batteries as backup power sources for pitch systems, which can flexibly cope with high voltages, realize high-precision remote monitoring, are small and lightweight, and can contribute to the rapid development of China’s offshore wind power generation.
Focusing on the concept of circular economy, Panasonic brought the fiber ecological material kinari to China for the first time and the equipment refurbishment business started in China. Kinari does not use original materials, but uses plant waste such as coffee grounds as raw materials for production, converting waste into resources and having good recyclability. The equipment refurbishment business reduces maintenance costs, energy costs, etc. by recycling and repairing old display cabinets from closed stores and refurbishing them into new products for reuse, which has been well received by partners.

This “power generation glass” uses Panasonic’s unique material technology and inkjet technology to combine glass with solar cells, achieving the world’s highest level of power generation efficiency, up to 17.9%. This product is integrated with building materials, has free design dimensions, and can be customized according to customer needs.
