Excellent ECPs

Group-wide efforts to create products with the highest level of environmental performance

Results of FY2015 and future initiatives

Toshiba Group is making efforts to achieve the highest level of environmental performance for all products we develop. In FY2015, we certified 95 products as Excellent ECPs. Toshiba Group's sales of Excellent ECPs reached the goal for FY2015 (1.8 trillion yen) in FY2014, one year ahead of schedule. As a result of further progress in the areas of energy and infrastructure as well as community solutions, sales of Excellent ECPs for FY2015 totaled 2.75 trillion yen. Excellent ECPs are not limited to products for the domestic market; they are being created in countries around the world. We will continue to make efforts to create Excellent ECPs in all Toshiba Group product areas.

Energy & Infrastructure Systems

In order to meet growing energy demand in the world, Toshiba Group will provide main power supply and power generation systems globally that contribute to a stable energy supply and the shift toward a low carbon society as well as equipment, systems, and services that support social and industrial infrastructure. Toshiba Group's secondary battery SCiB™ is installed on cars, power generation systems, and a variety of other devices by taking advantage of its features, including quick charging, a long battery life, and a high level of safety.

Hybrid Puffer™ Gas-Insulated Switchgear (GIS)

  • Designed to be compact (to save resources) by using Toshiba's original method (hybrid puffer™ method) for arc extinction*1
  • Footprint: 8.96m2
    (This is the most space-saving equipment in the industry world)
  • Distance between lines: 800mm
    (This is the shortest distance in the industry world)
  • Reduced use of SF6 gas*2:
    -25% (based on Toshiba data)
*1
Arc extinction: To extinguish generated arc when electric current is cut off with a breaker
*2
SF6 gas: Sulfur hexafluoride, one of the greenhouse gases

EV bus system using SCiB™ batteries

  • CO2 emissions reduced by approx. 40% compared to diesel buses (no emissions while driving)
  • The rapid charging performance of SCiB™ batteries enables super quick charging several times per day, which supports running buses according to an ordinary bus schedule. Reduces the amount of batteries that must be carried compared to batteries that are charged at night once a day
  • Batteries after service as in-vehicle ones can be reused in stationary applications by using residual battery value assessment technology*
*
Some batteries may not be able to be reused depending on the deterioration

Community Solutions

In order to contribute to the creation of smart communities designed to be environmentally friendly and to ensure comfortable lifestyles, Toshiba Group provides total solutions for a wide range of areas, including energy and water as well as transportation, for offices, factories and homes. In offices, for example, we develop devices with the highest efficiency for facilities (e.g., lighting and air conditioning systems as well as elevators) and provide advanced office equipment (e.g., accounting machines). We also provide services for achieving detailed control of the operation of such devices, thereby reducing the overall energy consumption of buildings.

Light Commercial Air Conditioner "Super Power Eco-mini"

  • Equipped with a GaN power device and saves resources with a compact power supply (with the circuit board area reduced by 60%)
  • This adjustable illumination LED light bulb, which has the same shape as conventional light bulbs but was difficult to produce, was made available by installing an illumination adjustment circuit in the space created by downsizing the power supply; it facilitates replacement of conventional lights with LED lights
  • Power consumption reduced by approx. 85% compared to conventional light bulbs
  • An LED light bulb designed to enable smooth illumination adjustment, which further contributes to reducing energy consumption

  • Equipped with a backlighting technology that Toshiba has developed over many years and a new engine, 4K REGZA Engine HDR, to achieve a high image quality and a low power consumption. The power consumption* of 55G20X is less than 100 kWh/year
  • Awarded a FY2015 Energy Conservation Grand Prize (Special Jury Prize). The industry's first 4Kcompatible television to be awarded the prize
*
Measured based on the Energy Saving Act
Amount of power consumed annually by watching TV for 4.5 hours per day

Business notebook PC Satellite Pro R50-C

  • The battery lasts for as long as approx. 9.0 hours*. Using a PC on battery power during the daytime when there is heavy demand for power and charging the battery at night when power demand is relatively low contributes to the leveling of power demand
*
The actual operating time varies depending on the model as well as on the usage conditions and settings
