Creating Your Optimal Path Towards A 100% Renewable Energy System


The energy landscape is in transition towards more flexible and sustainable energy systems. The journey is different for every continent, every country and every city – each has their own individual path.
Creating your optimal path towards 100 renewable energy system




Optimising Energy For A Smarter, Safer And More Reliable Grid


Global markets are adopting Energy Storage as core flexibility tool to enable clean energy transition across the grid. Wärtsilä is central to this renewable energy transition by providing Flexibility Solutions and the GEMS Digital Energy Platform, which connect energy assets to energy markets in technically and economically optimised manner.
Optimising energy for a smarter safer and more reliable grid




Balancing Power-The Bridge To The Future


As intermittent renewables increasingly displace traditional baseload generation the greater the need becomes to shore up the grid’s stability with balancing capacity.
Balancing power the bridge to the future




Power-To-X Allowing The Final Push To 100% Renewable Energy

The intermittent nature of renewables will need flexible solutions to balance them in the future as well. The demand for green hydrogen and renewable synthetic fuels is growing significantly as industries are seeing it as a way to decrease their carbon footprint. Power-to-X is one of the key components to reach the final 100% while mitigating climate change, allowing a carbon neutral society.
