The energy industry is at a crucial juncture, where the adoption of SF6-free technology for high-voltage dead tank breakers (DTB) has become imperative. As the world grapples with the challenges of climate change and the need for sustainable energy solutions, the environmental impact of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas has come under scrutiny.
To mitigate greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), minimize the industry's carbon footprint, and align with global environmental commitments, transitioning to SF6-free technology in high-voltage dead tank breakers is not just a choice but a responsibility that the energy industry must embrace.
Hitachi Energy offers reliable SF6-free high-voltage circuit-breakers with advanced switchgear technology to improve grid sustainability and increase the efficiency of the transmission system infrastructure.
Today’s challenging energy landscape
Meeting the demands of a dynamic industry
Utilities face several challenges in managing and maintaining today’s complex and interconnected grid. Decentralization of power generation, integration of renewable energy sources into the grid and modernization and optimization plans to meet rising energy demands and climate change concerns are informing the way electricity is generated, transmitted, and distributed today. Utilities need to offer an efficient and balanced approach that is both sustainable and robust to maintain existing systems and deploy innovative solutions.
