Comfortable housing and lifestyle - Residential Sector

Tokyo Gas continues technical development that further advances the usability of kitchens, baths, floor heating and other gas appliances in order to offer a more comfortable life to customers. In 2005, Tokyo Gas finally launched “a residential fuel cell system” that is able to generate electricity and hot water from town gas. Tokyo Gas will advance technical development for the sake of your ultimate comfortable daily life.

Technology supporting town and a society - Commercial and industrial sectors

In April 2003, the Rationalization in Energy Use Law was revised. Office buildings, schools, hospitals as well as factories are now required to strengthen energy saving measures. Environmental measures and energy saving have become the most significant issue for customers. With cutting edge technology, Tokyo Gas has been improving the efficiency of energy saving equipment/systems such as gas air conditioning, gas cogeneration, and developing “smart energy network system” which realizes energy-saving, cost reduction and environmental load reduction as well as realizes environmental measures.
