Pollutec Horizons 2009

December 4, 2009
   NEDO is participating in Pollutec Horizons 2009 held in Paris-Nord Villepinte, France, from December 1 to 4.
Pollutec is Europe’s largest annual exhibition for presenting “tomorrow’s solutions to environmental and economic challenges.”
As this year’s exhibition is being promoted as the “show for green growth,” NEDO is introducing Japan’s cutting-edge renewable energy technologies related to smart grid technology, including mega solar sodium-sulfur (NAS) batteries, which are capable of storing a massive amount of energy (NGK Insulators Ltd.), and solar cells (Kaneka Corporation).
   In addition, NEDO, in cooperation with the Agence de l’Environnement et de la Maitrise de l’Energie (ADEME), organized a workshop on smart grid technology. ADEME and NEDO have had a cooperative relationship since 1991.
During the workshop, ADEME and NEDO introduced their respective activities in the smart grid technology field, and several companies from France and Japan as well as relevant institutions introduced their technologies and related projects.
  Japan’s energy technologies attracted a great deal of interest during the workshop, and it concluded with a panel discussion that included an active exchange of opinions on several topics, including the future direction of bilateral cooperation in the smart grid technology field.
