Environment & Energy Solutions

Kyocera has developed and supplied solar panels and generating systems since the first oil crisis in the early 1970s, based on a commitment to improving our world through renewable energy. Expanding this product line has led us into new energy service businesses, which we will continue to develop in our quest for a low-carbon future.

Solar Power Generating Systems

Kyocera offers a vast line of high-quality solar panels with long-term reliability for a diverse range of roof shapes and terrains.

Lithium-ion Battery Storage Systems (Japan)

Our popular lithium-ion storage systems can charge at night — when rates are lowest — to minimize home energy costs. They can also provide emergency back-up power during blackouts, and can serve as on-site power storage for a residential solar system.

Virtual Power Plant (VPP)

By developing innovative VPP solutions, Kyocera seeks to further promote the use of renewable energy. VPPs use an online network to manage the renewable energy generated in homes and factories, balancing supply and demand using the latest storage battery-linked energy management technologies and IT solutions.

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) Systems(Japan)

Kyocera’s environmentally friendly SOFC cogeneration systems efficiently use the heat produced as a byproduct of power generation. By continuing to generate power even during electrical grid blackouts, this technology greatly contributes to enhanced energy reliability and human wellbeing.

Energy Service Business

Kyocera has established a new energy service business in Japan which lets customers install residential solar power generating systems at no initial cost.
