NSH-2012 Smart House of the Future by Nissan

In the Home Zone within the Smart Community area, Nissan will display its Smart House "NSH-2012", which uses the LEAF to Home charging system. To maximize available space, NSH-2012 adopts the high-floor style of ancient Japanese housing design. A polyhedral room, which can fit in the urban landscape of the near future, features a monocoque structure used in aircraft; the outer panel of the main body is also subjected to structural stress.

With a power supply system that combines double power generation (solar power and fuel cell power) with the LEAF to Home system, this home can maintain stable in-house power supply that is not affected by weather, and can rely on solar power and power stored in an EV's batteries if power is cut off during a disaster. With an energy management system that uses next-generation mobile communications, the home's electric appliances also employ energy-saving and remote-controlled maintenance features.

Supported by the Yokohama Smart City Project (YSCP) - a collaborative project between the City of Yokohama and private enterprises, of which Nissan is a member - presentations and talk shows will be conducted on the venue stage. These events are organized by the participating companies and organizations as part of the Smart Community ZERO concept, and will be supported by a truck equipped to supply solar-generated power that was used in areas in Japan affected by the March 2011 earthquake.
