TEPCO is considering to improve maintenance method of its multiple storage batteries.
Currently, status diagnosis of these storage batteries are done by operators measuring voltages and visually inspecting appearances.
To make it more efficient, we would like to replace this human operation with alternative means by using sensors and communication technologies.
We are seeking partnership with companies that can offer a mechanism for remotely diagnosing deterioration of storage battery.
