Energy transition on the horizon

Decarbonization strategies for a lower CO₂ footprint

Power sector decarbonization

The world is hungry for energy, and climate change calls for lower emissions. Industries and power generation companies take on both challenges while running their daily operations.

These are demanding times. The companies need efficient, reliable decarbonization technologies to succeed, plus innovative, individual solutions that adapt to their decarbonization strategies.

Decarbonization technologies on the radar

The Decarbonization Radar with the the different areas: efficiency increase, fuel shift and deep decarbonization

We adapt to new realities and seize emerging opportunities. But decarbonization takes time. It’s not an overnight shift. We are pragmatic and thorough. Our approach is holistic and step by step.  

We improve the efficiency of existing energy assets. We upgrade and modernize wherever possible. The transition away from conventional fuels comes next. We move from coal to gas and then to hybrid systems and cleaner fuels, such as hydrogen.

This is how Siemens Energy leads the way to a deeply decarbonized world. This is how we support governments, utilities, and industry to a transformed system of energy. 

Decarbonizing energy systems - step by step

Click the animation below, and we'll take you on our energy transition journey. You will see how zero CO2 emissions can become reality.

Partner of the energy transition

Siemens Energy will shape the future of energy systems. We want to be climate neutral. And we want to gradually decarbonize our portfolio.

We already support our customers on their path towards decarbonization. Efficient, reliable technologies, and service solutions that reduce emissions and costs: Siemens Energy is here to transform the world of energy.

Let’s get to work and make real what matters. Let’s energize society with our unique portfolio. Fuel-flexible and hydrogen-ready gas turbines. Combined cycle plants. Hybrid power and energy storage. Power-to-x and sector coupling. We have what it takes to decarbonize society.
