Smart Cities can be identified along six main dimensions: smart economy, smart mobility, smart environment, smart people, smart living, and finally, smart governance. A smart city is a sophisticated combination of ICT and electricity networks that optimizes electricity utilization by exchanging real-time information of electricity among power companies, corporations and homes.
For more than a century, NEC has been at the cutting-edge of research and development (R&D), providing world-class innovations required to meet the growing technological needs fueled by the rapid expansion of information technology, IP and next generation networks and the growing convergence of IT and communications, including Smart Grids.
With NEC’s latest technologies in meter data management, energy storage, electric vehicle charging as well as energy management systems, NEC continues to push the limits of smart grids. What will NEC’s smart energy concepts and solutions mean to you?
By infusing innovation into the intelligent grid, we can create a Smarter City, and a Greener Earth.NEC’s Environment and Energy Solutions
NEC provides technologies, systems, products and solutions that help generate green energy and enable an energy savings society. NEC’s technologies enable energy system visualization and control, and effective utilization of off-peak and distributed energy sources.
Amalgamating Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) with Meter Data Management System (MDMS), it seamlessly measure, collect, and analyze energy usage for long term data storage, and then integrating to existing enerprise applications to help steamline utility business processes.
With capability to store energy in multi-tiers (for domestic applications to substation levels and beyond), harness and integrate and stabilizing the vehicle-to-grid (V2G) process. NEC’s experience and know-how in Li-ion battery technologies play a large role in the power grid of the future.
NEC’s comprehensive scope in eMobility will shape the future of the in-wave of EV’s - comprehensive end-to-end solutions, highly scalable and deployable common hardware platforms, an EV infrastructure cloud, and the provision of charging stations, on top of the battery technology that powers the Nissan Leaf.
Intelligent Energy Efficiency solutions designed to monitor and control energy consumption from homes to offices to buildings to plants, promises cost savings and carbon dioxide reduction, which are necessary milestones on the roadmap to greater sustainability and energy efficiency.
