Solomon Power and Hitachi Conclude MoU on Resolving Energy Issues Leveraging Internet of Things

TOKYO, May 16, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Solomon Power and Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501) announced that they have concluded a memorandum of understanding (MoU) aimed at resolving energy issues leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT). The ultimate goals are to lower energy costs and to improve energy security for the Solomon Islands.

The Solomon Islands is a country composed of about 1,000 large and small islands. The majority of its approximately 600,000 residents rely on diesel power generation and the country imports all the fossil fuel used to generate this power. Solomon Power is actively moving forward to reduce energy costs and improve energy security by providing power to more of the region's residents via renewable energy sources and by reducing fuel consumption.

Hitachi is expanding its social innovation business in collaboration with customers to resolve societal challenges, leveraging its social infrastructure expertise cultivated over many years, and the latest digital technologies. To advance the use of renewable energy, Hitachi draws upon its experience in the construction of high-efficiency solar and wind power stations and its expertise in applying IoT technology to ensure power-generation stability.

Under this MoU, Hitachi will begin the collaborative creation with Solomon Power to design a solar power plant and structure the business, involving the stakeholders related to the construction and operation of the solar plant.

Going forward, Solomon Power and Hitachi will work together toward the shared vision of an IoT-enhanced solar power station for the Solomon Islands.
