The Smart Grid, a next-generation system using IT to efficiently manage the demand and supply of electricity, is gathering attention as a new market. This year's CEATEC JAPAN show will promote a Japan-style Smart Grid system featuring environmental technologies related to green IT, saving, creating and storing energy, the Smart House, electric vehicles (EVs) and social infrastructures. In addition, a 3D theater introducing cities of the near-future coupled with smart grids will be unveiled. At the same time, the test driving EVs will be conducted.
Established in collaboration with fields within the
IT and Electronics industries, this exhibition area
is designed to provide a clear picture of Japanese
In addition to welcoming visits from government
officers and a wide range of business customers from
the IT and Electronics industries and other sectors,
Smart Grid Innovation 2010 will fully exploit the
potential of the media gathered at CEATEC Japan
to promote smart-grid developments to interested
parties both domestically and internationally.
