By 2050, our energy system will need to evolve
It all starts with seeds of change
To deliver a sustainable energy future for all, we must pursue three imperatives
the power system making it more reliable and secure
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.
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.
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.

Our Plan and Targets
the power system making it more sustainable and resilient
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.
Eco-portfolio for a carbon-neutral energy future
EconiQ™ is Hitachi Energy’s eco-efficient portfolio for sustainability where products, services and solutions are proven to deliver exceptional environmental performance. EconiQ portfolio is sustainability-oriented in design to deliver a superior environmental performance compared to conventional solutions.
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.
