As cities seek out strategies to operate more sustainably, the transportation sector is undergoing a monumental shift. The pace of urbanization is accelerating rapidly, driving greater demand for novel mobility options. To keep CO₂ emissions in check, modern transport infrastructure must operate efficiently and reliably, while minimizing downtime and total cost of ownership. Within this evolving landscape, transport operators are seeking sustainable options that take them beyond the status quo.
For more than a century, Hitachi Energy has been a pioneer in rail and urban transportation. From our traction transformers and substations, to our proven asset management and network control systems, to our game-changing EV charging solutions, we understand that ultimately—whether by rail, road, water or air—the strategy for tomorrow must be quicker, smarter, safer and greener than today.
Hitachi Smart Technologies Deliver Safer, More Efficient and Sustainable Transportation
By embracing green mobility and leveraging advanced AI - based solutions, providers can achieve the social, environmental, and economic objectives of their user-base. In addition, operational performance can be optimized with predictive and pre-emptive maintenance.
Keep rails running smoothly
Rail transport is the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation. Compared to motor vehicles, it releases 80% less greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, sustainable cities mean an ever-growing influx of new rail passengers. To satisfy demand, providers will need reliable and low-emission power line to keep networks on track.
Setting the stage for eMobility
Massive uptake of battery-powered public and private transport is on the horizon. New investments in the grid must provide universal and easy access to charging infrastructure. These investments will mean new opportunities for the next generation of silent, flexible and zero-emission urban mass transport.
The sustainable air travel paradox
Air travel is the heaviest greenhouse gas emitter in the transportation sector, and solutions for truly green aviation are still out of reach. At the same time, smart site solutions that enhance travel experiences for passengers and optimize working environment for staff are a critical first step.
Eco-trade means greener ports
Ports contribute more than 3% of greenhouse gas emissions. The main culprits are cargo ships and drayage trucks that transport the world’s goods. As more and more port authorities join the race to zero emissions, they are seeking highly integrated power and automation systems to modernize logistics and slash emissions.
