Panasonic green room
Panasonic is another consumer electronics company with a broad portfolio of home and commercial products. At CES 2010, it had a room dedicated to eco-ideas including a home energy management system that can be controlled through a TV. Here is a fuel cell that uses natural gas and converts it to electricity. One of the byproducts is heat, which is used to heat home hot water. Its home energy products are being tested in Japan and Denmark now. By 2018, Panasonic aims to be the dominant supplier of energy-efficiency products in the home, company executives said.
