Fujisawa SST - Sustainable Smart Town. This innovative Smart Town was co-developed by the public sector and private companies, making use of leading-edge sustainable technology. And it's very smart. Powered by solar energy, it integrates EV car sharing, advanced emergency preparedness services, IoT-equipped homes, and more.
