Keynote Speech Title: Power Sector Decarbonization
Summary: The world is hungry for energy, and climate change calls for lower emissions. Power generation companies take on both challenges while running their daily operations. These are demanding times. The companies need innovative solutions to succeed, plus individual solutions that adapt to their decarbonization strategies. We at Siemens Energy 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. Starting from improving the efficiency of existing energy assets. upgrading and modernizing wherever possible. The transition away from conventional fuels comes next. by moving 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.
