Join us on this virtual journey

How we drive the energy transition

Pushing the boundaries of conventional and renewable energy systems is key to meeting the world’s needs for sustainable, reliable, and affordable power. Combating climate change while addressing increasing energy demands are top priorities. Always in lockstep with our energy industry partners, Siemens Energy is a driving force in reaching shared decarbonization goals and enabling the energy transition for a sustainable future.

Energy Industry Post-pandemic: New directions?

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to more disruptive changes in the energy sector than any other event in recent history. In this sense, the crisis also offers opportunities. We have a unique opportunity to accelerate the energy transition worldwide. We must now join forces to quickly bring the economy back on track for recovery and, at the same time, align it sustainably and with a view to climate protection.

The Future of Hydrogen

Hydrogen is not just a hype, but a central pillar of deep decarbonization. It is key to reducing and eventually eliminating carbon emissions across sectors of the economy that have proved difficult to decarbonize: the chemical, iron and steel industries as well as transportation, especially long-haul traffic.

Powering Decarbonization Through Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence can be an important driver of decarbonization, since it allows the continuous improvement of power plant operations towards higher efficiency and less degradation – and thereby help to save fuel and decrease CO2 emission significantly.

What color is my hydrogen?

With green hydrogen we can tap into the large underutilized potential for renewable energy of many regions in the world – both wind and solar. By exporting this renewable energy in the form of liquid fuels like e-methanol or e-gasoline we’re making good use of natural resources. A vital step in this direction is taking place with a demonstration project in Chile starting on the road to a methanol future. When operational in 2022, it will become the world’s first completely integrated plant producing almost climate-neutral e-fuel.
