The "Green Air Conditioner" Demonstration Experiment in Tokyo, Japan

ch.02 Aug 11, 2016
The summers in Japan are hot and humid. Each year, the number of extremely hot days recording temperatures above 35℃ is increasing. Especially in the metropolitan area, the ground tends to retain heat, giving way to the urban heat island effect.

On August 5, 2016, Panasonic Corporation began its demonstration experiment of the Green Air-Conditioner (currently under development) together with the Minato Ward in Shimbashi Station's East Exit Plaza (also known as the SL Plaza) as part of efforts to help mitigate the urban heat island effect, to provide relief from the heat and comfort in the summer.
