Introducing the Zero Energy House and more [0 min 41 sec]

What commands the greatest presence in the Panasonic booth is the "Casart Eco Cordis." The entire surface of the roof is covered by solar panels that create energy from sunlight. In addition, it also offers better thermal insulation. The Casart Eco Cordis also effectively uses the air underneath the floor, which is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, so it really incorporates technologies and ideas that takes advantage of the sun and nature's blessings. There was also a wide-range of products equipped with ECO NAVI, which detects wasteful use of energy and automatically controls them, on display. Eco performance of each of these products was also introduced. Moreover, Panasonic showcased compact, yet high capacity storage batteries to propose a safe and secure lifestyle that helps you be prepared for emergencies.
