In Japan saving electricity is hot topics because of the disaster.
I read an article that measuring amount of electricity consumption in Japan is rougher than in some area of the US.
If in Japan we can measure the individual consumption in intervals of hour or less with the system called “smart meter”, we will be able to control the consumption and avoid a blackout easily.
But the system can’t be adopted in Japan easily because it is related to the privacy.
I wonder if our company proposes local government officials who are in charge of social infrastructure to visit the US to think about adopting “smart meter” into their area.
I will study more as a material to generate our group travel business.
