Panasonic household fuel cell (ENE FARM)
The 2013 model of Panasonic's household fuel cell (ENE FARM) released in April 2013 achieved the world's highest (*1) total efficiency of 95.0% (LHV) (*2). It has also achieved significant price reduction (*3) through the reduction in the number of components used.
The ease of installation has improved as a result of the reduction in the equipment depth, the development of the structure to connect pipes under the equipment and the separation of the backup heat source, which heats water when the hot water tank ran out of hot water, from the hot water storage unit. You can select the backup heat source with the most suitable functions from available lineups.
The remote controller has a color display as standard, which is larger than the previous model. Text and graphs are more easily visible.
As of January 2013, Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd., Toho Gas Co., Ltd., Saibu Gas Co., Ltd., Shizuoka Gas Co., Ltd., Keiyo Gas Co., Ltd., Osaka Gas Co., Ltd., Hokkaido Gas Co., Ltd. Hiroshima Gas Co., Ltd. and Odawara Gas Co., Ltd. have adopted the Panasonic household fuel cell (ENE FARM) and are promoting its installation in households.
