Japan Looks to Lead in Energy Management Systems

Creating systems that allow homes, buildings, and industries to minimize their demands on energy grids is  the heart of energy management systems, and Japan is on track to become a leader in the field, reports Kamil Bojanczyk at Greentechmedia. The Japanese government is leading a push to deploy such recently developed systems nationally, with an eye on the future global market. In two years the national market alone will be worth several billion. A mature transmission grid, a pressing need to reduce energy demand, and the opportunity to corner a new technology market fueled the rapid evolution of energy management systems  there. Having already established one of the world’s most efficient energy grid structure allowed Japan to focus on energy management, while the Fukishima nuclear disaster fueled the need to reduce energy consumption as soon as possible. In the past year, most of the major Japanese conglomerates have announced energy management  products and pilot studies, including Panasonic, and Toshiba, which envisions the future power grid as a network of energy management systems controlling demands from the local to regional level.  Japan is set to lead a growing global market.

  1. I’m Richard Hanley and in the minute I’m working as a site manager for any school inside the midlands. I enjoy my job and I’m constantly hunting for new strategies to help the school save income wherever attainable. Not too long ago I’ve had a HeatingSave Building Energy Management System installed which covers the entire school premises and aids me maintain down the power fees very simply. More than the previous year we have saved approximately 35% off of our typical heating expenses alone!
