Maui the ashes from which their 50 in 5 will RISE!

I happened to click on the first video below, it is about the Maui/Lahaina Fire.  It is an appeal for all of us to keep their plight in the spotlight and to NEVER FORGET.  This I think is very good advice, because the truth is that what happened in Maui is a serious ALARM and a foreboding of what is coming to all of us very soon.

As I was watching, I caught a reference to 505.  Having just completed my latest post “50 in 5”  it rang in my ears.  I felt an urging to check it out.  It thought it was a reference to a road or highway in the area.  It was so much more.  I made the connection, I hope you see it also.

Lahaina was a sacrifice, no doubt.  An offering, in exchange for power, finances and favor for the NEW WORLD ORDER they are building.  I believe that the DELPHI Murders were also a sacrifice for the same thing.

This PROJECT they have going on is so much bigger than anyone can really comprehend.  It is the work of SATAN/the Devil/The Adversary.  Whatever you want to call him.  This is the culmination of all his work/efforts/plans over thousands of years.  He needs humans to work through.  He needs humans to call his vision into reality.  He needs humans to align with his will.

Humans need him, to accomplish their most outrageous visions/dreams/plots/plans.  They do not have the strength and/or power needed on their own.

They are planning/plotting to take the souls of ALL of humanity.  IF Jesus the CHRIST/Yahushua the Messiah does not return soon.  There will be no flesh left to save.

If you have not see the following related topics, check them out.  Especially the 50-in-5 post, it will help you get more out of this post.  Hopefully it will help to connect the dots. 



505 is the name of the area there along Front Street in Lahaina, which was totally wiped out.

Kauaula Beach (aka “Shark Pit/505”) 

Overview: I’m going to admit something—Kauaula isn’t the proper name of this beach. I always try to use native Hawaiian place names, but I’ve yet to find a name for this beach that everyone can agree on. SO, if you know it, please let me know.

Known to locals as “Shark Pit,” this beach sits by Kaua’ula Stream and is at the base of Kaua’ula Valley.

While it’s mainly known as a classic surf spot (advanced surfers only!), the beach is also popular with families who come here to wade in the shallow waters and escape the summer tradewinds. Rarely, if ever, is it windy here, and there’s always plenty of room to stretch out and find your own patch of sand.

The beach is actually pretty long, and extends all the way to Lahaina Harbor and the Lahaina Shores condominium. There’s a beach volleyball court by Kamehameha Iki park, which is right across from the Front Street tennis courts as well as 505 shopping center.

A lot of Lahaina surf schools operate on the sand in front of the break wall, and while the swimming here is non-existent (it’s WAY too shallow and murky), it’s a good spot for catching a tan or going for a jog down the beach.

Good For: Surfing, jogging, suntanning, volleyball, visiting with children, escaping the wind, and proximity to Lahaina/Front Street.
Kauaula (kā’u-ā’-ū’-la), n.A strong wind from the mountains, occasioned by the breaking over of the trade winds; often

destructive at Lahaina.

Ancient Hawaiian birthing stone

Review of Hauola Stone

Reviewed January 5, 2020

Hauola Stone is a large stone, in the shape of a low-backed chair and believed by Hawaiians to hold healing powers. It sits in Lahaina harbor where the sea and the underground freshwater meet. Right in front of the old Taro patch which is in front of the Library.

We did find this area completely overtaken with homeless people but we were able to walk over to where the stone is.

The chair was hard to see at first since we were there at high tide, but we finally were able to make it out.

We read that during the 14th and 15th centuries, the ancient Hawaiians used this stone, as a birthing stone for royalty. When the chief’s ‘wife was ready to give birth, her attendants would help her into the stone, assist in delivering her child, and witness the birth.

If you are downtown in the waterfront area it is easy to find.

The State of Hawaii’s goal is to obtain 40% of its electric power generation from renewable energy sources by 2030

  • Content By: Hitachi
  • Release Date: February 18th 2015

Hitachi recently announced that it has begun operations on the demonstration site for the “Japan-U.S. Island Grid Project” (commonly referred to as the “JUMPSmartMaui”) on the island of Maui, Hawaii, in collaboration with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO),Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Cyber Defense Institute, Inc. An opening ceremony was held on Maui to coincide with the launch of site operations.

Video: The New Smart Grid in Hawaii

Due to increasing demands for renewable energy, Hawaii is in need of an advanced Island Smart Grid. According to the Maui Electric Company, renewable energy currently accounts for 21% of the total energy supply on Maui.

The goal of JUMPSmartMaui is to demonstrate smart grid technologies that will enable the efficient use of renewable energy and will contribute to the implementation of a low-carbon social infrastructure system in island regions. The demonstration site has been designed to respond to rapidly changing demands in the renewable energy market through the use of electric vehicles (EV) and other innovative technologies.

Operations at the demonstration site are scheduled to continue until March 2015. Following this period, studies and discussions will be conducted for implementing new business models based on the results and evaluation of the demonstration.

Hitachi has already recruited numerous electric vehicle users and residents on Maui to volunteer in the demonstration.

As the company leading the Project, Hitachi oversees all aspects of Project activities, and has been working on the construction of the demonstration site with local stakeholders including the State of Hawaii, the County of Maui, Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc., the University of Hawaii, and the American national research laboratories.


Nov. 1, 2018
The Hawaiian Electric grid modernization strategy will meet the state’s 100% renewable portfolio standard, the most ambitious clean energy goal in the U.S

Across the three utilities’ service territories, some 80,000 privately owned rooftop solar power systems can export energy to the distribution network to supply other customers. This two-way flow of energy requires a flexible, responsive distribution network to accommodate these thousands of neighborhood virtual power plants. To meet this challenge, the utilities developed a comprehensive strategy to transform the power delivery network, so it will be ready and resilient for the interconnection of an increasing volume of renewable energy sources.

In August 2017, the Hawaiian Electric Companies submitted a plan, calledModernizing Hawaii’s Grid for Our Customers,” to the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC). The plan described how a comprehensive grid modernization strategy was essential to reaching the state’s goal of transitioning to 100% renewable resources for power generation by 2045. Regulators approved implementation of the first phase of the plan in February 2018.

Developing the Strategy

The grid modernization strategy was the result of extensive customer outreach, technology research and piloting of the latest technologies, with the goal of providing customer choice, equity and cost savings in addition to greater access to distributed energy resources (DER). The Hawaiian Electric Companies have become leaders in finding cost-effective alternatives to infrastructure upgrades that will help to encourage and integrate more customer-sited solar power.

Rapidly evolving technologies in storage, voltage management tools and advanced inverters will help to more than triple the amount of private rooftop solar power in Hawaii. Customers will have new options such as flexible demand response and electric vehicle charging programs that also will provide the grid services necessary to ensure grid stability. In addition, new technology will improve the reliability and resilience of the islands’ electric systems, which are threatened by the growing impacts of climate change.

Many of the technologies incorporated in the Hawaiian Electric Companies’ strategy are the result of Hawaiian Electric pilot projects and studies. For example, to address voltage fluctuations caused by sudden changes in solar power generation and identify ways to integrate more DER, the utilities have developed a non-wires voltage management and optimization strategy.

Following extensive research and collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the utilities will rely on private rooftop solar to manage voltage through autonomous advanced inverter functionality. Then, grid-edge devices such as secondary volt-ampere-reactive (VAR) controllers will be used to supplement the advanced inverter functions.

Voltage Management

The Hawaiian Electric Companies worked with NREL to improve the way in which the grid operates with high levels of distributed solar, largely by changing the way the inverters operate. The collaborative study, “Simulation of Hawaiian Electric Companies Feeder Operations with Advanced Inverters and Analysis of Annual Photovoltaic Energy Curtailment,includes recommendations for the activation of voltage regulation grid-support functions (GSF) to enable the utilities’ grid planners to interconnect more customer-sited rooftop solar.

Recommendations include the combined activation of volt-VAR (reactive power priority) with volt-watt and the deactivation of fixed power factor. The activation of volt-VAR and volt-watt resulted in the interconnection of more solar and the least energy curtailment when compared with other combinations of GSF, like the activation of fixed power factor. With the combined activation of volt-VAR and volt-watt, the Hawaiian Electric Companies will be able to provide a non-wires alternative for customers who experience secondary high-voltage issues to interconnect their photovoltaic (PV) systems safely.

However, advanced inverter functions alone may not solve the growing hosting capacity issues. Grid-edge technologies, such as dynamic VAR controllers (DVCs) also will play a major role in enabling greater private rooftop solar adoption. The utilities launched a pilot project with Varentec Inc., which deployed DVCs on distribution circuits in Kailua, a suburb of Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S., with high penetrations of solar. The first phase of the pilot study, which ended in 2017, demonstrated DVCs achieve a fast and dynamic response to load and solar generation changes, ensuring service voltages are kept within industry standards.

More importantly, the study concluded that deployment of secondary VAR controllers will increase the medium-voltage (MV) feeder’s solar hosting capacity from 5 MW to 7 MW, providing a 40% increase in hosting capacity. For saturated circuits, use of DVCs will increase the adoption of private rooftop solar, which might not occur if customers had to pay for costly infrastructure upgrades.

Conservation Voltage Regulation

In devising their grid modernization strategy, the Hawaiian Electric Companies have had to overcome unique technical challenges that required outside-the-box solutions. For instance, Varentec’s DVC traditionally has been used for conservation voltage reduction for energy savings or peak demand reduction. However, the utilities faced a different problem: voltage fluctuations attributable to the large number of DER on the distribution systems. The Hawaiian Electric Companies recognized a potential for the Varentec DVC to be used in a different configuration to enable even more customer-sited resources to be connected and sought Varentec’s advice on whether the methodology could be varied to meet the utilities’ needs.

In collaboration with Varentec, Hawaiian Electric worked through this challenge to change the use of the device by employing different methodologies and test procedures to enable an additional 2 MW of DER on an already saturated distribution circuit. In an expansion of the pilot project, Hawaiian Electric deployed 100 DVCs and its grid edge management system (GEMS) platform at three Oahu substations with high penetrations of solar. Because of this pilot project, Hawaiian Electric validated the capability of Varentec’s DVC to increase the solar hosting capacity from 1 MW to 3 MW on one of the substations and from 10.34 MW to 14.3 MW on a second substation.

First Phase

An implementation plan for the first phase of the strategy, “Modernizing Hawaii’s Grid for our Customers,” was filed in June 2018. This first phase will include the installation of the following new technologies:

  • Deployment of advanced meters on an as-needed and where-needed basis, primarily for enhanced sensing and reliability purposes. This will also enable customers to take advantage of new private rooftop solar programs and variable rates. Customers who participate in new programs that provide grid services also will be able to benefit from these enhanced meter features.
  • Launch of a meter data management system, which collects and stores the data received from the advanced meters, will include an online energy portal that enables users to monitor and manage their energy usage.
  • Implementation of an interoperable telecommunications network will enable the communication path for both advanced meters and field devices for distribution sensing, control and automation. Currently, programs only rely on cellular services, which are not available in all areas.

The as-needed, or aptly termed walk-jog-run, approach will help to mitigate technology risks and enable the utilities to take advantage of technological advancements as newer technology is deployed. The success of this approach will depend on industry collaboration. For example, the utilities are looking to deploy a telecommunications network that uses open and interoperable standards so future technologies can plug and play. The utilities already have identified the Wi-SUN Alliance standard as a critical piece to their strategy and are actively working with equipment manufacturers to ensure technologies deployed today can evolve as the Wi-SUN standard matures.

The estimated cost for the first phase, which will start in 2019 and continue to 2023, is US $86.3 million, with most customers paying less than $1 a month for the high-tech upgrades. Future phases of the implementation will include an advanced distribution management system (ADMS) and additional field device technology to enable enhanced grid control, visibility and data aggregation functionalities at the edge of the grid.

The Hawaiian Electric Companies’ next application to the PUC will build on the components and technologies introduced in the first phase. The telecommunications network deployed as part of the initial phase will deliver the communications platform necessary for future field devices and advanced meters to provide grid-sensing capabilities and data to the ADMS.

Future Integration

In coordination with grid modernization efforts, asset management will consider future integration so cost-effective technologies and functionalities are embedded in the infrastructure replacements already being deployed. The analogy the Hawaiian Electric Companies use is to avoid paving the road twice—and not having to dig up a freshly paved street to replace underground cables/ducts. This coordination between grid modernization and asset management is a framework to ensure the road to a modern grid only needs to be paved once and modern grid investments are planned, targeted and coordinated.

From its conception, the Hawaiian Electric Companies’ grid modernization strategy has focused heavily on stakeholder and customer engagement. This level of involvement is the new norm for Hawaiian Electric Companies, which are now involving more stakeholders in the planning process.

Recognizing that planning based on modeling theoretical values will no longer work—because of the scale of resource diversity and complexity in Hawaii—the utilities have embarked on a new integrated grid-planning system. Therefore, it is essential to integrate market-based solutions and related integration considerations into the planning analysis to evaluate the best resource and grid options for customers. This process aims to serve as the framework, among other things, to set the evolving strategy of grid modernization investments for the longer term in a cost-effective manner.

The Hawaiian Electric Companies also propose to leap ahead to an innovative systems approach to energy planning. This fully integrated planning process aims to yield the most cost-effective renewable energy pathways, rooted in customer and stakeholder input.

Also, by streamlining traditionally disparate and serial tasks related to planning and procurement into a unified process, what currently takes up to three years to complete is expected to be reduced to 18 months. Moreover, Hawaii will benefit from expanded market opportunities for resources, grid services and non-wires alternatives for T&D, which can foster innovative solutions for a new energy economy.

Inc. and provides leadership and strategic direction on matters related to the implementation of the Hawaiian Electric Companies’ grid modernization strategy. He joined Hawaiian Electric’s engineering department in 1991 and most recently served as manager of renewable acquisition, a critical role that required working with key energy stakeholders to facilitate the utilities’ progress toward meeting the state’s 100% renewable energy goal.

Marc Asano ( is the manager of advanced T&D planning at Hawaiian Electric Co. Inc., leading the development of long-range plans and strategies for the integration of distributed energy resources. He played an instrumental role in developing the Hawaiian Electric Companies’ grid modernization strategy.

Big data analytics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Thingsthese are just some of the products of research and development that have become regular fixtures of our daily lives. Our private and professional lives are saturated with digital data and information technology through which we develop and share ideas, which in turn generate one new business after another.
Just think how our lives have been transformed over the past 10 years, with the rise of the smartphone, new ways of shopping, new ways of working, and the like. If we have changed that much in ten years,
then how far have we come over the past 50 years, or even the past 30 years? No one could have imagined the phenomenal change. Digital technology has taken us from an industrial society centered on manufacturing into a society where information is
Now, we stand at the cusp of a new age. How will we greet this new dawn, and

where exactly are we headed? 
On January 22, 2016, the Government of Japan released the 5th Science and
Technology Basic Plan (Cabinet Office 2016a). The plan proposes the idea of “Society 5.0,” a vision of a future society guided by scientific and technological
innovation. The intention behind this concept is described as follows: “Through an
initiative merging of the physical space (real world) and cyberspace by leveraging ICT (Information and communication technologies) to its fullest, we are proposing an ideal form of our future society: a ‘super-smart society that will bring wealth to the people. The series of initiatives geared toward
realizing this ideal society are now being further deepened and intensively promoted as ‘Society 5.0.’”1
An annotation explains the reasoning behind the term Society 5.0 as follows:
“(Society 5.0 is) so called to indicate the new society
created by transformations led by scientific and technological innovation, after hunter-gatherer society,

agricultural society, industrial society, and information society”(see Fig. 1)
Society 5.0 will feature an iterative (“involving repetition,”) cycle in which data are gathered, analyzed, and then converted into meaningful information, which is then applied in the real world; moreover, this cycle operates at a society-wide level. In Society 5.0, the resulting information will not just guide the operation of an air conditioner, generator, or railway; it will directly shape our actions and behavior.
To derive solutions for the physical space (real world), cyberspace must have a
structure mirroring that of the real world.
This is where the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) come in. IoT allows varied and voluminous data to be gathered in cyberspace. AI, on the other hand, can analyze the vast amounts of data obtained and then create a cyber model just like the real thing.  Thus, when the literature mentions the “merging” of cyberspace and physical space, it means that these two spaces have come to resemble one another so much as to be indistinguishable.
The idea of merging the cyber and the physical is not novel. Power generation and
rail transport, for example, now use control systems that model their target environment so as to supply the right level of energy or run the trains on time. Such systems are known as cyber-physical systems (CPS). However, the convergence of the cyber and physical that Society 5.0 envisages does not involve separate, isolated systems. Society 5.0 is about cyber-physical convergence at the level of society as a whole. Convergence at this macro-level could perhaps be described as the merging of spaces with spaces.

What Is a Knowledge-Intensive Society?

Data becomes useful to us once we convert it to information, and then into knowledge. Hitherto, this conversion process has been driven by human–computer interactions. In Society 5.0, the process will be driven without human intervention; of the three elements, humans will only gain greater opportunities to access AI-derived knowledge, the final output of the conversion process.
How will this change affect society?
Like other developed nations, Japan evolved from a labor-intensive society, in
which production relied on the efforts of a massive workforce, into a capitalintensive society, which was focused on tangible goods and was based on mass production and mass consumption (both of which resulted from industrial revolutions). In the capital-intensive society, cities developed around seaports and airports where tangible goods were clustered. Under the Society 5.0 way of thinking, however, value is generated not from clusters of tangible assets but rather from knowledge spaces—spaces where data and information are gathered and then deciphered and deployed through knowledge (Gonokami 2017). In this sense, a knowledge intensive society is a key aspect of Society 5.0.

 What Is Society 5.0?
New knowledge will arise when data and information are deployed interconnectedly. New knowledge can spark innovation in tertiary industries such as services, but it will also do so in the more traditional primary and secondary industries such as agriculture and manufacturing. Japan’s agricultural sector is somewhat inefficient owing to sporadically distributed farmland. A knowledge-intensive Japan, however, could spark an agricultural renaissance by leveraging detailed spatial information and predictive weather knowledge along with drone and robotic technologies.
A knowledge-intensive society may also generate new industries and
transform the industrial structure. In pursuing this paradigm shift, universities and businesses, which have until now played a core role in technological development, will need to play a new kind of role.
The role of technology thus far has been to add value to tangible goods, but
in the knowledge-intensive society, universities and businesses will need to help cultivate new industries, which in turn will generate new value by clustering and combining knowledge
A data-driven society is a society where IoT-gathered data is converted into information and knowledge, which then drives the real world either indirectly (with the mediation of humans) or directly (through automation).
How does this differ from an information society? An information society derives
value from information. A data-driven society (in both senses) derives value from data. The government’s Growth Strategy 2018 (Growth Strategy Council 2018) describes this idea in stark terms:“…in the data-driven society of the 21st century, the most important currency of economic activity is high quality, up-to-date and abundant ‘real data’. Data has become so valuable that saying that the success or failure of a business depends on its access to data [is] by no means an exaggeration.”
Some might argue that we should shorten the term “data-driven society” to “data society,” so as to more easily compare and contrast it with the “information society.” However, the government decided to add “-driven” to underscore how future technological progress will result in extensive automation (nonhuman-mediated
The first industrial revolution began in Britain in the eighteenth century, and it
was driven by the mechanization of manufacturing equipment. Water- and steampowered machinery enabled a leap in productivity in the textile industry and other
industries. The second industrial revolution began around the turn of the twentieth century, and involved mass production based on the division of labor. Producers shifted to fossil fuel-generated electric power, and factories became much larger.
This second industrial revolution was epitomized by the Ford Motor Company’s
auto production. The third industrial revolution, which began during the 1970s,
involved electronics. Producers used robotic technology to automate some
manufacturing processes, and consequently achieved significant leaps in productivity. It was during this time that Japanese manufacturing gained worldwide
Industrie 4.0 heralds the next stage of industrialization. As many readers will
know, Japanese manufacturers already use robotics and sensor technology, and many processes are automated. Many of these readers may feel that the Japanese manufacturing has already made great strides in terms of productivity. Yet Industrie 4.0 is not just about making factories more efficient. As Taro Yamada argues, Industrie 4.0 is all about creating a data–information–knowledge cycle, in which all manner of manufacturing-related data, including data related to designs, clients, and suppliers, are gathered and shared among different fields and organizations (Yamada 2016).
The key difference between the third and fourth industrial revolution is that the
latter uses data in a manner that surpasses traditional manufacturing frameworks. In the past, data related to the use of products, for example, would be abandoned upon the sale of the products; in the fourth stage of industrialization, however, manufacturers continue to gather this data after the products are sold. This practice allows manufacturers to identify latent needs from clients’ Big Data and strengthen their value networks, thereby creating new business opportunities. Another difference with Industrie 4.0 is that added value is created through mass customization. In other words, AI drives customized output, flexibly accommodating diverse demand.
Although Industrie 4.0 focused primarily on manufacturing, the scope of the
project extends farther. The vision requires the establishment of data-related standards and regulations (as well as the institutional environment necessary for such),
which necessitates a collaborative process involving not only core manufacturing industries, such as the auto and electronics industry, but also IT and communications industries, academia, and government.
Industrie 4.0 was not the first project to propose information integration. In 1984, Ken Sakamura of the University of Tokyo launched an open architecture real-time operating system kernel design called
TRON (The Real-time Operating System Nucleus) Project. In the 1987 and 1988
proceedings of the TRON Project, the concept of a “highly functional distributed system” (HFDS) was proposed (Sakamura 1988).
Likewise, the phrase “Internet of Things” predates Industrie 4.0. Kevin Ashton, founder of the Auto-ID Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, writes, “I’m fairly sure the phrase ‘Internet of Things’ started life as the title of a presentation I made at Procter & Gamble (P&G) in 1999.” Ashton also clarifies that he uses the term to underscore the importance of linking intangible information with physical “things” (Ashton 2009). Thus, the idea of information integration architecture predated Industrie 4.0’s launch in 2011, and businesses and academics were already pursuing their own research projects in this area.
The role played by the Industrie 4.0 initiative was to reaffirm the importance of such innovation. Industrie 4.0 was proposed as a top-down national strategy involving collaboration between industry, academia, and government. Such
an approach was necessary because the task of building an information integration
architecture among industry, academia, and government represented the core of the “fourth industrial revolution,” one that holds the key to innovating in manufacturing and industry, in general.
Japan has taken a similar approach. In March 2017,
Hiroshige Seko, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, attended the German computer expo CeBIT in Hannover and declared the government’s vision of “connected industries” (Ministry of Economy 2017).
What Are the Aims of Industrie 4.0 and Society 5.0?
The aims of Industrie 4.0 were outlined in the German Federal Government’s HighTech Strategy 2020 Action Plan for Germany, the German equivalent of Japan’s
Science and Technology Basic Plan. So how is Industrie 4.0, as outlined in HighTech Strategy 2020 Action Plan for Germany, compared with Society 5.0, as outlined in the fifth Science and Technology Basic Plan?   As Fig. 1.6 illustrates, there are some commonalities. Both visions emphasize the use of technology, including IoT-related technology, AI, and Big Data analysis. Similarly, they both entail a topdown, state-led approach with collaboration between industry, academia, and the governmental sector.
There are some differences, however. Industrie 4.0 advocates smart factories, while Society 5.0 calls for a supersmart society. In addition, although both visions
advocate the deployment of cyber-physical systems, the scope of deployment differs; in Industrie 4.0, CPS is to be deployed in the manufacturing environment,  while in Society 5.0, it is to be deployed across society as a whole.
The two visions also differ in terms of measuring outcomes. Industrie 4.0 aspires to create new value and minimize manufacturing costs. Such down-to-earth outcomes allow for relatively simple and clear-cut performance metrics. By contrast, Society 5.0 aspires to create a supersmart society. The metrics in this case are
much more complex. According to the Comprehensive Strategy on Science, Technology and Innovation for 2017, success is to be measured by how far society can “balance economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by providing goods and services that granularly address manifold latent needs regardless of locale, age, sex, or language to ensure that all citizens can lead high-quality, lives full of comfort and vitality” (Cabinet Office 2017).
There is also considerable difference in the scope of the intended future effects
of technological innovations. Industrie 4.0 calls for an industrial revolution centered on manufacturing, but says nothing about how such a revolution may impact the public. By contrast, as illustrated by its concept of a people-centric society, Society 5.0 focuses heavily on the public impact of technology and on the need to create a better society. Included within the scope of Society 5.0’s vision is a course of reform intended to engender an inclusive society that caters to diverse needs and preferences. This important differentiating aspect of Society 5.0 was mentioned in an address delivered by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Chancellor Angela Merkel during the CeBIT conference in Hannover. Upon hearing Abe’s statements about Society 5.0, Merkel expressed her strong support for the vision (Prime Minister’s Office of Japan 2017; JETRO 2017a, b).
The Common Issues for Both Industrie 4.0 and Society 5.0 Japan is sometimes said to be a problem-stricken first-world country. The problems that Japan faces are complexly interwoven such that an improvement in one area often comes at the cost of another. To give an example, curbing welfare spending
might be good for the nation’s fiscal health, but it would lead to grave problems in medical and healthcare environments. Similarly, we all understand the need to cut carbon emissions, but if we must live frugal lives to minimize their carbon footprint, Title Industrie 4.0 (Germany) Society 5.0 (Japan) Design  that would run counter to the goal of ensuring that “all citizens can lead high-quality lives full of comfort and vitality.”
Accordingly, to ensure that Society 5.0 can solve these dilemmas and create a
people-centric society, it is necessary to clarify the target metrics of such a society as well as the roles that policy and technology should play in achieving them.Industrie 4.0, with its vision of smart factories, emphasized the manufacturing
sector as the main physical space (real world); as for cyberspace, it envisaged a
CPS-centered cyber architecture wherein information is integrated horizontally
between different industries and vertically within manufacturing systems.
On the other hand, Society 5.0, with its vision of a supersmart society, emphasizes society as the main physical space (real world); as for cyberspace, it must strive for a CPS centered cyber architecture wherein information is integrated horizontally between different service sectors (e.g., energy, transport) and vertically within the systems that track each service user’s history and attributes (such as their medical information, consumption behavior, and educational history). It must also achieve solid information security to enable the use of information.
Both Society 5.0 and Industrie 4.0 reflect Japan and Germany’s responses to
global initiatives, and both make a statement to the international community. Both visions seek the integration of information between different industries or sectors, and they both face the same challenges to such an end: the need to overcome the regulatory and technical bottlenecks that stand in the way of constructing the necessary cyber architecture, and the need to establish ISO-style international standards and international information security institutions, which are necessary for building such an architecture. Many commentators note that Western countries lead the way
on this score, so Japan must press ahead with building an information integration architecture, while keeping an eye on global trends.
Both Industrie 4.0 and Society 5.0 seek to build global cyber architecture that can serve as a safe environment for creative activities. A key factor that will determine their success in achieving this goal will be how well they work with Western countries, China, and the international community at large.
In the case of Society 5.0, one key challenge concerns how to optimally balance the
needs of society with the needs of the individual. We cannot achieve progress until we solve this problem.
The actors involved in policy and technology must coordinate with each other so that everyone understands how each policy proposal or technological 
development fits into and contributes toward Society 5.0. Otherwise, these actors will pursue their own particular technologies or policies in an uncoordinated fashion without understanding how they fit into the larger picture of Society 5.0.
Habitat Innovation.
Whereas Germany’s Industrie 4.0 focused on industry, Society 5.0 envisages a
future society. In other words, in addition to revolutionizing industry through IT integration, Society 5.0 seeks to revolutionize the public’s living spaces, or habits.
Further progress must be made in promoting applied smart city initiatives.
Additionally, the policies necessary for optimizing society (so as to solve social
issues) must be adeptly linked with the technology necessary to deliver high-quality social services (that enable the public to live happy, comfortable lives). With this in mind, we have presented tentative suggestions for balancing the interests of society with those of individuals.
