Hitachi Energy will focus on sustainability and digitalisation at the debut World Utilities Congress in Abu Dhabi, stressing the need for energy firms to deliver across the power value chain for a carbon-neutral future.
Hitachi Energy’s theme at the Congress, which will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec) during from May 9 to 11, 2022, is aligned to the UAE’s emphasis on innovation and tech-driven disruptive transformation across energy utilities in pursuit to build resilient low carbon business models driven by automation and digital solutions.
“For Hitachi Energy, the World Utilities Congress is an ideal platform to showcase and communicate our cutting-edge innovation that help accelerate a carbon-neutral. We have been at a relentless pursuit towards achieving Net Zero, and we are already ahead of our timeline in our Sustainability 2030 plan with our operations being powered by 100% fossil-free electricity,” said Dr Mostafa AlGuezeri, Managing Director, UAE, Gulf and Near East, Hitachi Energy.
The company said this has resulted in reducing CO2 equivalent emissions by 50% compared to 2019, building further impetus to Hitachi Energy’s purpose of ‘Advancing Sustainable energy future for all.’
The World Utilities Congress is hosted by Taqa and the event will bring global energy and utilities companies under one canopy. The show will also offer a significant opportunity for Hitachi Energy to share its experience and expertise and the best practices the company follows in its sustainability drive.
Dr Mostafa added: “Automation and digitalisation are two sides of a coin, both contributing in the journey towards carbon-neutral businesses of tomorrow, and we at Hitachi Energy believe that the momentum of this disruptive transformation will gather pace further as energy business stakeholders realise that increasingly adhering to best ESG (Environmental, Social, Govern-ance) practices are the norm these days rather than an exception.”
Hitachi Energy has been at the forefront of the energy transition, facing up to the challenges and complexities of the change that spans across the business spectrum while substituting legacy systems with intuitive technology driven solutions.-- TradeArabia News Service
