In the demonstrations of EV and home network standardization, we are field-testing state-of- the-art
technology such as solar photovoltaic power systems, high-spec heat insulation, and high-efficiency
power supply controllers and devices in an eco-house. The Home-ICT- Femto (new communication
technology) controls and optimizes EVs and eco-houses to reduce
CO2 emissions while supporting people’s lifestyles. The Home-ICT-Femto uses “femto
communication” to allow seamless connection between eco-houses and EVs, which are expected to
become commonplace in the future.
We are testing the new technology, which also includes a home information management system, to
provide residents with a comfortable and energy–saving lifestyle. The experiments to standardize
the ICT technology necessary to realize a low-carbon society and coexistence with nature offer
suggestions to make life more comfortable and prosperous.
