Creating A Carbon -Free Future

Hitachi Energy is advancing the world’s energy system to be more sustainable, flexible and secure. The company offers an extensive portfolio of smart solutions, ranging from renewable integration and energy storage, via enterprise-level Asset Management and sustainable mobility, to energy services and “IT-OT integration solutions”

Hitachi Energy has placed sustainability at the heart of its Purpose and made a promise to advance a sustainable energy future for all. Sustainability 2030 is its strategic sustainability plan, summarising the company’s key commitments to act and drive businesses sustainably.

Speaking in one of our previous interviews, you stated that the region is on the right track to becoming greener and that you are looking forward to the development of the energy transition. Do the will, money, and legislative solutions for that exist?

― Electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system and urgent energy transition requires us to collaborate across stakeholders and sectors.

We need to think in a different way and are pioneering the innovative solutions needed to integrate renewables at scale. We offer digital solutions in high-voltage (HV) transformer stations (integration of all HV apparatus with optical connections, conversion of analogue to digital signals, digital measurement of voltage and current), digital transformer stations.

By January of 2023, using 100 per cent fossil- free electricity in your operations, you managed to reduce your CO2 emissions by more than 50 per cent compared to 2019. What is the next goal?

― Based around four pillars – Planet, People, Peace and Partnerships – our strategy draws from the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a specific focus on the following eight elements: good health and wellbeing; quality education; gender equality; clean water and sanitation; affordable and clean energy; responsible consumption and production; peace, justice and strong institutions; and partnerships for goals. Through Sustainability 2030, we aim to achieve carbon neutrality in our own operations by 2030.
