About Toshiba's Smart Community business

Toshiba established a dedicated Smart Community Division to promote its Smart Community business in October 2010.

The division reports directly to the president & CEO.

On April 1, 2011, Toshiba established a new in-house company, the Social Infrastructure Systems Company, which reinforces Toshiba's ability to offer integrated solutions across power transmission and distribution, a broad range of social infrastructure, including railway systems, automotive systems and rechargeable batteries, and to support the Smart Community business.

Smart Grid is the next generation energy supply system that fuses power supply and communication infrastructures.
Smart Grid uses power and communication networks to connect homes, offices, and factories (consumers) to multiple distributed power providers (small-scale power generators) such as solar, wind, fuel cells, and facilities that store generated power.
This makes it possible to provide power according to demand by tracking and predicting in real time the power demands of consumers. We expect to efficiently use the power we can generate, reduce transmission loss, and stabilize the power supply by using communications technology to control the system and balance the supply and demand of electricity. In addition, creating a smart demand and response link between consumers and power sources will help save energy.

As a pioneer in the Smart Community business, Toshiba is already involved in a number of Smart Grid and Smart Community demonstration projects in Japan and overseas, including the U.S., France and India, that will ensure customers can access promising solutions and well-proven technology.

Over the long term, Toshiba’s commitment, financial resources and plan to use Landis+Gyr as a growth engine affords our customers, partners and the markets we serve new possibilities and new opportunities.
