Use of Renewable Energy

Toshiba Group is continuously striving to use renewable energy for a wider range of its operations. In FY2015, the Group used about 4,883 MWh's worth of renewable energy. This means that the Group reduced CO2 emissions by about 2,490 tons*. Toshiba Corporation has also used a green power system since January 2005 and has since been purchasing 2,000 MWh of electricity under a green power certificate annually.

Case Study: Introduction of a solar power generation system

Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.

In order to mitigate climate change, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. has installed a solar power generation system in its plant parking lot. The company performed a simulation before constructing the power generation system and decided to use its own high-transformation-efficiency inverter, which it found to be best suited for the system. As a result, the company was able to construct a system with a standard generating capacity of 105 kW (using a total of 700 power generation panels) and an annual power generation output of 155 MWh. As a result, the company is able to reduce annual CO2 emissions by approximately 88.9 tons. This system also significantly contributed to the renewable energy development policy promoted by the State of California.
