Panasonic Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (PM) and PanaHome Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. participated in the International Greentech & Eco Product Exhibition & Conference (IGEM), the largest environmental exhibition in Southeast Asia, held in Kuala Lumpur from October 16 to 19, 2014, where they displayed eco-conscious products and technologies as well as the solutions required for smart and sustainable housing and town construction.
At the Panasonic booth, a Smart House was built, equipped with a photovoltaic power generation system, Home Energy Management System (HEMS), energy-saving home appliances, and an electric vehicle (EV) charging outlet. The companies also showcased housing equipment including modular kitchen systems, PURE TECH air control technology and KIRATECH photocatalytic tile exterior walls. Wall-type precast concrete (W-PC) construction, which demonstrates excellent heat insulation, ventilation and waterproof performance was also presented for constructing link houses, where a lot of middle-class people live in. Our booth also included a diorama of the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town, currently being developed in Fujisawa City, Kanagawa, and the Smart City that Panasonic is constructing in Kuantan, Malaysia. Systems that not only save energy within each house but also within the entire town attracted visitors’ attention. The two companies will continue to recommend lifestyles that balance eco-friendliness with comfort by utilizing the state-of-the-art technologies exhibited at IGEM.
