Q6

The Correct
answer is “Wind power generation”.

Honda created a wind power generation system which can generate as much electricity as a Brazilian auto factory uses for its machinery. After taking into account the direction of the wind and the size of the site, nine wind turbines were installed. This installation generates 95,000 megawatt-hours of electricity—the amount used by the factory in a year, and enough to produce 140,000 cars in Brazil.

Q7

The Correct
answer is “Honda Smart Home System (HSHS)”.

The HSHS provides a comprehensive energy management system which helps to reduce everyday CO2 emissions by efficiently controlling energy in the home, and allows a home to be energy-independent in the event of a power interruption or disaster. With a combination of halving CO2 emissions through vehicle and cogeneration systems, and better insulated home with energy-conserving home appliances, we are aiming for zero CO2 emissions. Experimental buildings have been constructed in Saitama Prefecture. The people that actually live in them are using a variety of equipment and systems to test and verify reductions in CO2 emissions.

Q8

The Correct
answer is “V2H”.

Honda sees a need for energy management systems that consider how to supply energy and take an integrated approach to lifestyle and mobility. V2H enables a supply of energy from vehicle to the home, offering security and resilience in disasters. This system, Honda’s concept for an interlinked platform that connects lifestyle and mobility in a type of energy relay, is what we call V2H.

Q9
What is the name for a system that produces electricity by combusting utility gas, propane, kerosene, etc., and then uses that waste heat to produce hot water or steam for hot-water supply, heating/cooling, etc.?

Q9

The Correct
answer is “Cogeneration”.

Cogeneration systems, an excellent way to reduce CO2 emissions, turn one form of energy into two forms (such as electricity or heat) and make them available for use. Conventional systems at factories and hotels, etc., are quite bulky, but Honda has developed a small cogeneration unit for household use. Using this system, electricity is generated in the home, and waste heat from the unit can be used to reduce overall energy usage and curtail utility costs.

Q10

The Correct
answer is “Micro-sized mobility products”.

Even smaller than a mini-vehicle, the micro-sized mobility vehicle is designed to seat two passengers. Compact, maneuverable, and easy to handle, these vehicles also use very little energy, and they are expected to be the transportation of the future. Honda’s micro-electric vehicle, the MC-β, is one step ahead of the crowd, and is already in use in two places with very different situations: the crowded metropolis of Saitama City, and Miyakojima in the energy-challenged outlying islands of Okinawa.
