FY2018 - FY2019
Indonesia Activity Report
Realizing the production of processed agricultural products through the use of electricity.
Approximately two years since January 2018, Panasonic has made progress in the development of a model for livelihood development through solar power generation in a frontier of West Kalimantan, through the tripartite partnership among Panasonic, Yayasan Dian Desa and Asian Community Center 21.
Towards the goal of making social impacts by achieving sustainable development of the communities, we designed participatory activities, involving the local communities. Our efforts yielded appreciable results, including the development of processed food from local agricultural products by using electricity generated from photovoltaic and energy storage systems.
Future activities to create more social impacts
To improve the income of local communities facing financial difficulties, we will further accelerate project activities through ensuring the sustainable production of processed food and develop sales channels to share the profit with the local communities.
We launched a new project to promote photovoltaic power generation systems for off-grid and semi-electrified areas. To realize that, we will develop easy-to-use photovoltaic power generation systems for homes and implement test marketing including development of a leasing scheme.
