Homes with energy efficiency by high heat insulation, reducing the balance of energy consumption to approximately zero by creating and storing energy using solar power generator and storage batteries. These features also support disaster resilience.

Our Net Zero Energy House (ZEH)
We reduce energy consumption by improving the thermal insulation of the house and using energy-efficient equipment and devices. In addition, through self-generation and storage of energy using solar power generation and other means, and efficient use of that energy, the energy balance is reduced to virtually zero. That's what Sumitomo Realty & Development is offering with its net zero energy house, ZEH.
Energy saving through heat insulation and shielding
We employ heat insulating and shielding materials throughout these homes to achieve excellent insulation performance. They also satisfy the requirements for thermal insulation performance grade 4—the highest grade—set by the Housing Performance Indication System.
Energy generation and storage ensure efficient use and reduce waste
Electricity is used efficiently by using solar power during the day, recharging the storage batteries at night when rates are relatively low, and using the electricity stored in the storage batteries in the morning and evening. Linking with the HEMS* allows electricity to be used wisely and without waste.
In addition, electricity is available even in the event of a power outage due to a disaster, providing peace of mind.
