Decarbonization is one of the major challenges facing industry. Moving away from fossil fuels requires significant industrial transformation measures.
A climate-neutral industry across Europe by 2050 is an ambitious goal and, in combination with the consequences of the war in Ukraine, a real Herculean task.
The biggest hope in the fight for greenhouse gas neutrality is hydrogen - and for me, quite rightly, as H2 is the solution to many problems. Only with hydrogen is it possible, for example, to make certain processes in the chemical industry climate-friendly. It is also the most sensible way to replace coal in the steel industry.
This ecological and at the same time economic pressure on industry also unleashes creativity.
We are seeing technical innovations and innovative business models at energy suppliers, new digital players and in industry, where, for example, work is proceeding at full speed on the production of eFuels on an industrial scale. This willingness to change across industry and society is likewise accelerating the conversion of decentralized heat and power generation in the residential sector (responsible for around 40% of CO2 emissions).
Taking into account energy policy frameworks, the efficient use of hydrogen, the necessary conversions in production or the development of smart transition solutions – decarbonization strategies become a competitive advantage for companies.
We support you in filling leadership positions to successfully shape the transformation process.
