For a long time Japan has been called the home of global technology and we couldn’t agree more after witnessing Fujisawa Sustainable Smart town that is developed and led by the Japanese tech giant Panasonic. The Fujisawa SST is a joint project between the private and public sectors, and is a smart town based on actual lifestyles that will house 1,000 households. aimed to reduce carbon dioxide emission as well as water and energy consumption, this 19-hectare smart town has already opened its door for the residents and offers local energy generation for self-consumption, CCTV surveillance, eco-friendly mobility etc. The entire project will offer 600 detached houses and 400 condos, health and educational facilities, and a senior living project, among others.
About Houses: Every detached house in Fujisawa SST will be equipped with a solar power generation system and storage batteries. Devices for managing power consumption by home appliances are integrated into a complete Smart HemS (Home energy management System). The power generated by the respective systems can be used to meet household requirements and excess power can be sold. also, self-creation and self-consumption of energy makes it possible to ensure that lifelines will last for at least three days during disasters.
