Verification using Nature, Energy Gateway, and their respective services – Supporting electricity usage that is friendly to both power infrastructure and household budgets –
Shin Energy Co., Ltd. (Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture / President: Masahiro Inui / hereinafter referred to as “our company”) is Nature Co., Ltd. (Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture / Representative Director: Harumi Shiode / hereinafter referred to as “Nature”) Nature Remo 3” and Energy Gateway Co., Ltd. (Minato-ku, Tokyo / President: Masamitsu Sakai / hereinafter referred to as “Energy Gateway”) conducted a monitor campaign for the “Power Visualization Service” and utilized each service. We will carry out verifications related to changes in how electricity is used.
In recent years, in response to the “increased amount of power generated by renewable energy” and “soaring prices of fossil fuels,” it is required to “use electricity wisely” more than ever. We believe that we can turn energy into value by having customers correctly understand the “value of electricity” and use electricity wisely. ■ Activities
From January 25, 2023, we will target customers who have reached the end of the term of the renewable energy feed-in tariff (FIT system) for residential solar power generation within the TEPCO power grid jurisdiction or are planning to start it in the future. In addition, we will start accepting “Graduate FIT Dynamic Value” linked to the trading price of the wholesale electricity market. *1
A lottery will be held among customers who have signed up for “Graduate FIT Dynamic Value” to utilize the services and devices provided by Nature and Energy Gateway. We will carry out a monitor campaign to realize the use of electricity that is friendly to both the power infrastructure and the household budget by encouraging people to use electricity efficiently during the daytime and promoting power saving and energy saving in the evening hours when electricity is scarce.
Nature is developing a device business that manufactures and sells the smart remote control “Nature Remo” and the next-generation HEMS “Nature Remo E” that can operate registered home appliances from smartphone applications. By using these devices, customers can remotely control their home appliances even when they are out of the office, making it possible to avoid forgetting to turn off their home appliances. In addition, the company is also working to expand services for corporations, such as the “demand response support service” that uses these as the core. It will be possible to provide a service that automatically adjusts the set temperature of registered air conditioners and leads to power saving.
Energy Gateway has installed a dedicated sensor on the distribution board in the home, and is developing a “power visualization service” that visualizes the power consumption of each home appliance and the amount of solar power generation with a smartphone. By visualizing which home appliances are operating in each time period, it is possible to save power and energy.
In the future, based on these efforts, we will develop services that can reduce CO2 through energy saving at home and support the optimal use of electricity for customers.
*1 “Graduate FIT Dynamic Value” will be accepted from our low voltage website from January 25, 2023 (Wednesday).
