As the world's population and economies continue to grow, energy demand and CO2 emissions continue to increase. This has been placing a significant burden on our global environment.
Replacing conventional fossil fuels with renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power is viewed as one promising solution to this challenge.
In addition, storage technology, which temporarily stores surplus energy, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) which maintains a balance between energy supply and demand, are also expected to play an increasingly vital role in the effective utilization of diversified energy sources.
In a New Energy Society, people will be able to live comfortably and without worries about a stable energy supply, even when their energy comes from a diverse range of sources. To realize this society, NEC will continue pursuing a variety of initiatives.
In a New Energy Society, new energy components such as electric vehicles, EV chargers, solar panels, and storage batteries will increase in addition to the conventional electrical products that surround us.
NEC enables energy management by linking energy components within a network to optimally control energy use in individual units such as housing, office buildings and stores. We also support a range of convenient services for business operators and users.
As networks extend and link regions and countries, the volume of information being circulated will show explosive growth.
By enhancing its capability for quickly and accurately handling large volumes of information, NEC provides a system that accumulates, extracts and utilizes data in real time.
With such technology, NEC will continue working toward a New Energy Society.
