The energy transition, and coming along with it decarbonization, creates a new era for the industry and industrial processes. According to the International Energy Agenccy's tracking report, the sector currently accounts for 38%* of all energy used worldwide and a large share of global CO2 emissions. Yet, the world economy needs to keep going. But at a reduced level of green house gas emissions. What’s needed are smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable ways of operating industrial assets to balance the energy trilemma: a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy supply.
Our business area Transformation of Industry is the innovative, agile, and pivotal partner industrial companies can rely on to make all these priorities a reality. Our portfolio includes mission-critical rotating equipment, and electrical, automation, and digital offerings that optimize both these equipment and services. These, combined with continuous innovation in technology, business models, and partnerships will help industrial companies decarbonize their operations at all levels.
It’s how we are making tomorrow different today.
The industrial world is still dependent on fossil fuels
Cement, steel, and chemicals require carbon and fossil fuels as part of their production process and account for a large portion of global emissions. However, we can decarbonize these hard-to-abate industries through technological innovations and partnerships.
Anne-Laure de Chammard, Executive Vice President Siemens Energy, shares her views on decarbonizing industrial processes from different perspectives in this article.
"The energy transition has given organizations opportunities across the industrial supply chain to leverage new technologies and drive towards a more sustainable and viable future. Siemens Energy is uniquely qualified to help our customers achieve these goals.”Anne-Laure de Chammard, Member of the Executive Board & Executive Vice President Transformation of Industry, Siemens Energy
Our technologies are a backbone of affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy systems – but honestly, we can’t do it alone. Business, government, and society must work together to create a new and sustainable energy landscape. Global partnerships are needed to balance the energy trilemma – not only in the face of geopolitical crises, but also in managing the energy transition and achieving net-zero climate targets.
This white paper gives an overview of concrete steps to drive the energy transition – step by step and with a clear direction.

Energy transition and decarbonization: Pathways for the chemical industry
In our new whitepaper we describe pathways for the chemical sector to bring its operations and value chain on track toward a more sustainable and resilient energy future.
Decarbonizing this industry is particularly important because of its key role in delivering technology, products, and services that enable the energy transition, and because by reducing its CO₂ emissions, it will enable other sectors downstream to decarbonize their own value chain.
Latest use casesWith the increasing demands of the energy transition, the industry must find new ways and solutions, including for decarbonization, increased efficiency, use of energy from renewable sources. Together with our customers, we find such solutions based on our technologies, products, solutions and services throughout the energy value chain. Get to know our latest use cases that are in operation all over the world.
World's largest eucalyptus pulp production line in Brazil will be fossil free
180 MW renewable energy will be sold to Brazil's grid
Since 2000, the global pulp and paper industry has made much pogress decarbonizing its operations to mitigate climate change. Suzano is one producer that aims to set the pace for both efficiency and green sustainability , headquartered in Brazil, with 11 pulp mills and 10.9 million tons of current output a year.
