KYOCERA Implements Renewable Energy Technology In Launch Of U.S.-Japan Smart-Grid

"In this project, we will demonstrate how a smart house can play an important role from the demand side in a smart grid, where renewable energy such as solar power will be significantly implemented in the future," stated Kyocera Corporation Vice President and General Manager of the company's Solar Energy Group, Tatsumi Maeda, during a speech at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. "This smart house project was established to demonstrate the next generation of energy management by using the newest technologies."

Kyocera has been developing its solar energy business and supplying solar power products across the globe since 1975. Since then, the company has shipped roughly 3GW of solar modules, which is the equivalent of supplying a solar power generating system to roughly 900,000 homes *2. Born out of the company's many years of experience in the renewable energy industry, Kyocera's high-quality, highly reliable products and technological knowhow will be utilized to help contribute to the success of this smart-grid project.

*1 The full solar power generating system is 1MW; the remaining 90kW is comprised of 9 other 10kW systems in order to compare the performance of different types of solar modules. *2 Based on a 3.4kW per household solar power generating system.
