Smart Energy

Integrating ICT and energy technologies to help people live in comfort

ICT and energy components will make up the power systems of the future

The Japanese government has set a target to increase energy generated from renewable energy sources to 22~24% by fiscal 2030.
The global trend is also shifting towards renewable energy, with energy that was once generated in a concentrated and unidirectional fashion now being generated more and more in a distributed and bidirectional way.
What is now required is the comprehensive linkage and stabilization of all types of distributed energy. The key to achieving this kind of comprehensive integrated control is the development of advanced energy management technologies. NEC utilizes cloud networks and energy storage systems to increase the use of energy generated from renewable sources, which then helps stabilize the electric power grid as a whole.

Helping to optimize energy by integrating ICT and energy technologies

NEC is integrating cutting-edge ICT and energy technologies to help achieve optimum energy management and create a stable and efficient power supply and future-proof energy infrastructure. These technologies include "visualization technologies" that can be used to visually represent a range of data related to energy, "analysis technologies" that can accurately predict power supply and demand by using our original heterogeneous mixture learning technology through which a wide variety of collected data is analyzed, and "optimization technologies", which enable advanced management of peak shift and peak cut energy.
NEC is also actively developing new technologies including integrated surveillance and control solutions that can be used to control the charging and discharging of energy storage systems in real-time on the demand side, thereby creating virtual large-scale energy storage systems for users scattered in areas where large-scale energy storage systems cannot be installed.
NEC will continue to contribute to the realization of an energy society that is friendly to both people and the environment through solutions that integrate cutting-edge ICT with the latest energy technologies.
