As a Principal Partner of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) set to take place in November 2021, Hitachi aims to play a leading role in realizing a decarbonized society, and to become a climate change innovator. In alignment with Hitachi's messaging at the official Pre-COP event held in Milan in September and COP26 itself, this special exhibition will present Hitachi's environmental R&D efforts and technologies aimed at realizing carbon-neutrality, as well as Hitachi's take on transitioning towards a sustainable future.Close
Retail is connecting the producer with the consumer's desire to want a product soon. With Hitachi's digital solutions, the value chain is connected and the logistics are optimized so that consumers can get the products they want when they want. In this exhibition, we will introduce the future of the value chain that Hitachi aims at with concrete examples.Close
HVDC is a system that transmits power using high-voltage direct current and has the features of low transmission loss and the capability of transmitting a large amount of power over long distances. This technology contributes to the suitability for the interconnection of systems with different frequencies. It can also contribute to realizing a carbon-neutral society by converting renewable energy into the main power source, such as large-scale renewable energy grid interconnection and long-distance power transmission to large demand areas. In this virtual exhibition, we will introduce our HVDC solutions towards a carbon-neutral future.Close
The environment surrounding office buildings is changing drastically due to the influence of COVID-19 and workstyle changes. We will introduce Hitachi's building IoT solution “BuilMirai”, which has been developed as a new solution for Lumada in the building field to support smart management of buildings, and the office worker solution “BuilPass”, which provides new experience value for workers in the office.Close
We are working toward the creation of a carbon-free society as part of our efforts to help solve societal problems through our business activities.
Lithium-ion batteries (LiB), and the popularization of electric vehicles (EVs) are a key step toward realizing a carbon-free society, but improving their productivity, quality control, and efficient management is a major issue around the world.
Our company offers a broad range of products, services, and solutions in everything from LiB research and development to their manufacture and inspection. In this exhibition, we will look at two LiB solutions proposed by the Group.
Hitachi's “Smart Stocker” is equipped with weight sensors in the second and fifth shelf of the refrigerator. Connecting to a smartphone, you can manage stock by the weight of the stored food and drink, etc, and it will notify you when the remaining amount is low. By registering in your shopping website in advance, you can purchase the missing items in just the press of a button.
“Smart Stocker” will support your life and business with smart inventory management.
Hitachi is one of the leading providers of integrated particle therapy solutions. The treatment systems deployed include proton therapy system, heavy particle therapy system, and hybrid therapy.
In this exhibition, we will introduce Hitachi's particle therapy solutions through a video ("Hitachi Particle Therapy System for Patient-Friendly Cancer Treatment"), products catalogue, and website.
Hitachi uses digital technology to solve logistics issues, and realizes flexible and sustainable logistics by optimizing the entire supply chain through the sophistication of transportation, delivery and distribution centers.Close
In this exhibition, we will introduce the Regenerative Medicine Innovation Center, a facility where you can "see", "touch", and "simulate" various solutions for regenerative medicine provided by Hitachi at Nihonbashi Muromachi in Tokyo.Close
The opitimization of use of distributed power sources is underway, with decarbonization and resilience driving it in the background. We aim to accelerate the distributed power generation business further by effectively using small-scale distributed power sources with IoT based virtual power planning solutions.Close
Renewable energy is playing a major role in today's growing efforts to realize a decarbonized society, such as the SDGs adopted by the United Nations in 2015 and the Japan's 2050 Carbon Neutral Declaration. For many years, we have provided wind and solar power systems and contributed to the local production for local consumption of energy and regional revitalization through collaborative creation with customers. In this exhibition, we will introduce our renewable energy solutions, mainly focusing on wind power.Close
Realization of a supply chain that responds to market changes is an important issue in enhancing business competitiveness. And at the same time, it is not easy to design an optimal plan that considers the ever-changing condition, such as demand fluctuation, production capacity and inventory. We introduce the optimal plan solution that will provide the best possible plan considering various condition for the entire supply chain, with some examples.Close
To make the best out of the New Normal Era, it is necessary to develop IT that is mainly used for cost reduction and efficiency improvement, and actively use IoT to strengthen infrastructure resilience and transform business models.
In June 2021, Hitachi entered into a partnership with SORACOM, INC. to accelerate the promotion of our global IoT business. In this exhibition, we will introduce our collaborative creation use cases with improved infrastructure resilience and a vision for business model transformation.
In this exhibition, we will introduce digital solutions for public transportation on railways from the passengers' and transport operators' point of view.Close
While technologies like autonomous driving or advanced driving support have made our life more comfortable and convenient, the risk of cyber attacks is increasing due to connected systems becoming more widespread and using well-known protocols. In this exhibition, we will showcase security services of real-time security monitoring data from connected cars and related systems for earlier incident detection and prompt response.Close
