Panasonic Announces Sustainable Smart Town Project: Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town

Panasonic's President Fumio Ohtsubo announced on May 26, 2011, it is working together with eight other companies in an eco-conscious smart city project called Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (Fujisawa SST). This smart town concept showcases Panasonic's "entire solutions" business model in full scale and will serve as a worldwide model project of an eco-friendly city in action.

Panasonic and Fujisawa City in Kanagawa Prefecture, about 50 km west of Tokyo, announced on November 17, 2010 that it had reached an agreement to build a smart town on the vacant lot of Panasonic's former factory site. Aiming to open the new "eco-town" in the fiscal year ending in March 2014, the business partnership of the nine partner companies and one city will collaborate to build an innovative smart town deploying services and energy systems based on Panasonic's Eco Ideas for green lifestyles. All partners will work closely together throughout every phase of the project, from the master planning stage to actual operation of the town that will have about 1,000 households.
