Toshiba's global goals include developing and implementing leading low-carbon technologies, including solar and highly efficient turbine power generators to:
- Reduce CO2 emissions by 490 million tons in FY 2015
- Increase sales of its low-carbon technologies to approximately $23 billion* in FY 2015
Here's what we're doing in the Americas to achieve these goals.
In an exciting partnership with Caribbean Development Partners, LLC, our Houston-based Photovoltaic Systems Group is completing a 360 kW PV system for a Home Depot store in St. Croix, Virgin Islands that is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 412 tons annually, equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of 80 passenger vehicles per year. In another project, TIC plans to install five PV systems throughout MassachuÂsetts, generating approximately 9.2 MW annually.
