Hitachi Energy achieves 100 per cent fossil-free electricity in its operations

Hitachi Energy has achieved 100 per cent fossil-free electricity in its operations, the first-step target set out in its Sustainability 2030 plan. The company is driving towards being carbon-neutral in its own operations by 2030, in line with its purpose of advancing towards a sustainable energy future for all. It has also reduced its carbon dioxide equivalent emissions by over 50 per cent compared to 2019. The targeted 50 per cent reduction achieved ahead of plan will amount to approximately 175 kilo tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions per year. To achieve 100 per cent fossil-free electricity in its own operations and in support of the company’s carbon-neutrality goal, the company has pursued a number of pathways including supporting projects to generate their own fossil-free electricity, such as installing rooftop solar panels combined with e-mesh digital solutions for distributed energy resources, maximising energy efficiency and minimising carbon dioxide emissions.
