Case Study

Hitachi saves 60m Yen per year


Omika Works is the central base of Hitachi Ltd. Infrastructure Systems which designs and manufactures information and control systems.

Following the Japanese earthquake disaster in 2011, Hitachi decided to introduce “the smart next-generation factory plan”. As well as business continuity planning, this would also involve greater energy efficiency. They recognised that accredited certification to ISO 50001 would support this work.

Following implementation, the plant reduced 23 % of the contract electricity, 15 % of CO2 emissions and 5 million yen/month of electricity costs.

Further information is available in this factsheet on the Clean Energy Ministerial website.
