Panasonic President Kazuhiro Tsuga (pictured) delivered a keynote speech on January 8 to help launch the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas. He was joined by Joe Taylor, CEO of Panasonic Corp. of North America, who discussed the Panasonic/IBM partnership to develop Cloud-based appliances.

Mr. Tsuga's speech highlighted Panasonic's commitment to offering innovative, eco and smart solutions.

Taylor discussed Panasonic developments for the home - including green appliances. Taylor pointed out that Panasonic was ranked sixth in Interbrand's Best Global Green Brands in 2012 - up four spots from 2011 and the highest ranking of any consumer electronics company.

"Panasonic is offering energy solutions that are built on integrated solutions to create, store, save, and manage energy," Taylor said. Energy products for the home include hydrogen fuel cells and solar panels.

"Engineering products that save energy has been a top priority at Panasonic for a very long time, including home appliances, audiovisual products, and LED lighting," Taylor said. "To manage energy, Panasonic uses the Smart Energy Gateway, or SEG, which can be controlled through a variety of smart devices, both in your home and remotely. It checks power usage conditions throughout the house, and shows you exactly where and how you can save energy. We're using this same template to serve customers well beyond the home, including stores and whole communities around the world."

Like energy, the Cloud is going to be a key role in the company's future development efforts, Taylor said.

"The Cloud is essential not only to connect your devices, but also to anticipate and answer your needs - both in the home and beyond," Taylor said. "We're partnering with some of the world's leading IT companies to make this vision a reality. In fact, Panasonic and IBM have agreed to work together to assess the business and technical value of future home appliances connected to the cloud."
