From February 13 to 15 the Supermarket Tradeshow 2013 was held at the Tokyo Big Sight. Under the theme, "Full support for the food line," Panasonic proposed an extensive range of solutions for supermarkets that support the community's food lifeline. These solutions not only provide energy-savings, they also empower supermarkets to support the community in case of natural disasters. Please take a look at the comprehensive range of solutions the Panasonic group presented.

Panasonic's supermarket showcase business celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. This corner introduced the latest LED lighting and supermarket showcases that reduce the amount of cold air that escapes into the store thereby curtailing wasteful energy use. Panasonic also exhibited a CFC-free freezer system with zero ozone depletion, which helps bring to life the aforementioned showcases.

The energy creation-storage system helps reduce peak electrical consumption with the solar power generation system and storage batteries. Even in times of power outages, the system will supply power created by the solar power generation system during the day, and then power from the storage batteries at night. The system will help provide safety and security to the community by maintaining the minimum amount of energy necessary and keeping the store up and running.
By centrally controlling equipment such as showcases, freezers, air conditioning facilities, and lighting, which were separately controlled in the past, the energy consumption of the entire store may be conserved.
Panasonic also proposed a remote operation service, which monitors the energy consumed in the entire store 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, makes such information "visible," and finds "wasteful use" to help save energy.
