CARBON NEUTRALITY SERIES

A holistic 360° view to bring your carbon neutrality goals on track

Learn how Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can give you a holistic view of the environmental impact of your switchgear and help you reach carbon neutrality

For decades, sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF₆) has been the norm in high-voltage switchgear due to its superior insulation and switching properties. It is however a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming if leaked. Although the insulating medium is a major component of the carbon footprint of switchgear, there are other key considerations.

In this session, learn about Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) – a comprehensive approach to measuring environmental impact and making investment decisions into sustainable solutions.

As we put the spotlight on our Gas-Insulated switchgear (GIS), we will demonstrate all the sources of carbon footprint beyond SF₆. Finally, our experts will provide a practical example of the LCA calculation of our recently introduced EconiQ high-voltage technology, specifically in GIS, plus the important aspects when assessing alternative technologies.

Following the main part of the webinar, our speakers will hold a panel discussion to address attendees’ questions on the topic.
