Overview of Honda Exhibit at CEATEC JAPAN 2017
TOKYO, Japan, September 25, 2017 – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it will showcase various new technologies at the CEATEC JAPAN 2017, which will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan from Tuesday, October 3 through Friday, October 6, 2017. Under the theme of “Smart Energy Storage Management,” Honda will exhibit the Honda Mobile Power Pack System which consists of detachable mobile batteries, charge/discharge devices and the 70MPa Smart Hydrogen Station (SHS) Concept which generates and supplies high-pressure hydrogen. Through this exhibit, Honda will propose the low-carbon and high-efficiency utilization of energy, where energy generated with natural sources will be stored and then used when needed.
Honda Mobile Power Pack System
- The mass-production model of the Honda Mobile Power Pack, detachable mobile battery:
Honda Mobile Power Pack stores electricity generated using renewable energy and serves as power source for small-sized electric mobility products and homes.
- Honda Mobile Power Pack Exchanger Concept, charging station unit:
Honda Mobile Power Pack Exchanger can charge multiple units of the Honda Mobile Power Pack at once and supply replacement mobile power packs. At the same time, it can contribute to the stabilization of power supply by supplying electricity from mobile power packs within the station to the power grid during peak hours of power demand.
- Honda Mobile Power Pack Charge & Supply Concept, charging/discharging device:
When combined with the Honda Mobile Power Pack, the Honda Mobile Power Pack Charge & Supply can be of value in various ways in people’s daily lives. For instance, it can be used as an emergency power source or even as a regular power source in unelectrified areas.
70MPa Smart Hydrogen Station(SHS) Concept
70 MPa SHS Concept generates, stores and dispenses high-pressure hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles. 70MPa SHS Concept became the world’s first*1 hydrogen station equipped with a high-differential-pressure electrolyzer to realize hydrogen generating pressure of 82MPa (megapascal). (The filling pressure is 70MPa*2.) Honda is envisioning the commercialization of this SHS model, which features the Power Creator, Honda’s original high-differential-pressure electrolyzer, that eliminated the compressor and realized compact packaging. The Power Creator generates hydrogen by achieving electrolysis of water using electricity generated from various energy including renewable energy.
Striving to realize a sustainable society where people can enjoy life, Honda will continue to expand its efforts toward the realization of “local generation and local consumption of energy” and a “carbon-free society” by combining technologies to “generate” and “use” energy and “get connected” for energy.
