Hitachi Energy 2030 Plan

We have a clear and crucial purpose which is to advance a sustainable energy future for all. Electricity will be the backbone of our sustainable energy future and our most important role is to ensure that we have a modern energy system that is fit for this future.

By 2030, our energy system will need to evolve​

4x more

Renewable capacity must grow 4x more than it is today

18x

Electrical car sales are expected to increase 18x the level today 

20%

In industry, emissions must drop 20% by 2030 and 90% by 2050

It all starts with seeds of change

To deliver a sustainable energy future for all, we must pursue three imperatives

1. STRENGTHEN

the power system making it more reliable and secure

Real outcome

Fighting wildfires with innovation in Australia 

In Victoria, Australia, Hitachi Energy played a significant role in building a climate-resilient and reliable grid, effectively mitigating risks of wildfire in the area. The Spark Prevention Unit is an innovative technology that prevents sparks or arcing from surge arresters, putting a stop to fires breaking out even before they start. Victoria’s resilient grid goes beyond preventing fires, it protects communities, wildlife and the environment.

Real innovation

Vegetation manager

Utilities understand the importance of vegetation management to grid reliability and long-term resilience—but it’s an expensive, complex, and tedious process. Without the right data, you can’t plan; without planning, you can’t prioritize; without prioritizing, critical issues go unresolved, and a hazard tree takes down part of your grid. Be proactive with prevention.

60% improvement

HVM improves vegetation management planning and field productivity up to 60%

Real collaboration

Hitachi Energy and Schneider Electric collaborate to speed up the energy transition

Hitachi Energy, a market and technology leader in transmission, distribution and grid automation solutions, and Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced today that they have entered into a collaboration to provide greater customer value and accelerate the energy transition.

3. EVOLVE

the power system making it more sustainable and resilient

Real outcome

The quality of life for cities of the future

In Nantes, France, Hitachi Energy’s unique flash-charging technology, Grid-eMotion™ Flash, is helping the city to transition to sustainable mobility. Grid-eMotion Flash enables Semitan, the bus operator, to flash-charge its e-buses within seconds at passenger stops. Moreover, the reduced size of the batteries increases passenger capacity. Thanks to this solution, passengers now enjoy a cleaner, quieter and smoother journey.

Offshore grids: The energy transition's next frontier

The European Union’s North Sea countries recently vowed to build more than half of the bloc’s needed offshore wind capacity by 2050 in order to reach EU climate neutrality. At the heart of the ambition to turn the North Sea into a green energy powerhouse lies the idea that countries will collectively harvest the water’s windy resources and jointly reap the benefits of this interconnected clean electricity revolution. But such a complex network is yet to be designed and built, raising questions about how a meshed offshore grid could actually be implemented from a technical and economical point of view.
